Humidtropics, until 31 December 2016 was a CGIAR Research Program led by IITA that aimed to transform the lives of the rural poor in tropical Americas, Asia and Africa. It used integrated systems research and unique partnership platforms for better impact on poverty and eco-systems integrity. Core program partners were: AVRDC, Bioversity International, CIAT, CIP, FARA, icipe, ICRAF, IITA, ILRI, IWMI, and WUR. We are happy to report that the great accomplishments and legacy products developed through the program continues to influence research into the future.
The Humidtropics Marketplace event held in October 2016 not only showed great interest in continuing to use systems research in for example the next generation of CGIAR Research Programs, but also to the need to continue with the Humidtropics Virtual Community of Practice. This is a one-stop-shop for agricultural researchers and development professionals who have a keen interest in improving the livelihoods and living environment of people based on social and technical innovations at farm, institutional and landscape levels.We decided to continue this community from 2017 onwards and encourage you to sign up and participate in the Community of Practice.
Humidtropics would like to acknowledge the CGIAR Fund Donors, and other donors and investors.
