Improving lives by solving problems in agriculture and the environment

Our mission

Front cover of CABI Key Message booklet

 CABI's mission is to improve people's lives worldwide by providing information and applying expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.

We achieve our mission by:

- Creating, managing, curating and disseminating information

- Putting know-how in people's hands

- Improving food security through climate smart agriculture and good agricultural practices

- Helping farmers to trade more of what they sow

- Supporting farmers by increasing their capacity to grow better quality crops, and fight pests and diseases

- Bringing science from the lab to the field

- Protecting livelihoods and biodiversity from invasive species and other threats

- Combating threats to agriculture and the environment


We are committed to playing our part in helping the world reach Sustainable Development Goals. Here we outline areas of focus where we believe we can make significant contributions to improving lives across the globe.

Through the Vision 2020 process, endorsed by the 2013 Review Conference, CABI has now developed a picture for the longer term evolution of the organisation, together with a set of goals to measure progress towards delivery of that vision. The medium term strategy lays out the first steps we will take along the pathway to Vision 2020 over the next 3 years. The main paper provides the key top-level strategy, with Appendices providing more detailed thematic strategies and logframes to support monitoring and evaluation.

We have also collated these strategic messages into one simple electronic booklet (PDF), to promote shared understanding of CABI's mission, strategy and values.
