ICARDA is part of CGIAR. Its mission is to contribute to the improvement of livelihoods of the resource-poor in dry areas by enhancing food security and alleviating poverty through research and partnerships to achieve sustainable increases in agricultural productivity and income, while ensuring the efficient and more equitable use and conservation of natural resources. ICARDA has a global mandate for the improvement of barley, lentil and faba bean and serves the non-tropical dry areas for the improvement of on-farm water-use efficiency, rangeland and small-ruminant production. In the Central and West Asia and North Africa (CWANA) region, ICARDA contributes to the improvement of bread and durum wheats, kabuli chickpea, pasture and forage legumes and associated farming systems. It also works on improved land management, diversification of production systems, and value-added crop and livestock products. Social, economic and policy research is an integral component of ICARDA’s research to better target poverty and to enhance the uptake and maximize impact of the research outputs. Key ICARDA programs : Dryland Systems ; Biodiversity and Integrated Gene Management ; Integrated Water and Land Management ; ; Diversification and Sustainable Intensification of Production Systems ; Social, Economic and Policy Research ; Geographic Information Systems.
