CABI in Review 2020

CABI’s latest Annual Review showcases our progress during a year that was very difficult for many people, and especially so for smallholder farmers. Our Review illustrates some of the ways we have worked with farmers to improve food and nutrition security, facilitate access to markets within sustainable value chains and create opportunities for women and youth.

Our focus

Sustainable economic development through agriculture. Meeting the increasing global demand for quality food by improving smallholder farmers' access to markets.

Climate resilient food and nutrition production, utilizing and conserving a healthy landscape and properly-functioning ecosystems.

Creating a world in which women, youth and marginalised communities are included and treated equally in agricultural production, thus reducing youth unemployment and poverty.

Helping people get access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food. Researching ways of producing and trading more food with less harmful pesticides, fewer harmful pathogens but more nutritional value.
