Please note: We are mindful that organizations are facing enormous challenges brought on by Covid-19, and we aim to ease some of the burdens on grantees. We invite grantees to speak to their program contact to discuss potential adjustments to their grant agreements, such as grant purpose or time frame.

Program 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 do this through collaborative agroecological systems research and knowledge-sharing that strengthen the capacities of smallholder farmers, research institutes, and development organizations. We take a holistic, ecosystem approach to agriculture, supporting research and partnerships that lead to increased crop productivity, improved livelihoods, better nutrition, and increased equity. We focus our support in three communities of practice in 10 countries located in the high Andes and Africa.
