McKnight’s international work falls into two subprograms.

Collaborative Crop Research Goal: Improve access to local, sustainable, nutritious food using collaborative research and knowledge-sharing with smallholder farmers, research institutions, and development organizations.

The Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP) works to ensure a world where all have access to nutritious food that is sustainably produced by local people. We focus our support in 12 countries on two continents where poverty and food insecurity have created “hunger hot spots.”

Southeast Asia Goal: We support balanced approaches to community resource rights and natural resource management.

The Southeast Asia program funds intermediaries, programs, and projects to fuel effective change work in the lower Mekong region of Southeast Asia (Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam).
