You are here: Home / What we do

We live in a world where problems like climate change, have arrived. While solutions to issues such as hunger and poverty are now within our reach, how we act today will make a big difference to how we live tomorrow.

By sharing knowledge and science, we tackle global issues like poverty, hunger, education, equality, sustainability, climate change and biodiversity. We do this by helping farmers grow more and lose less of what they produce, combating threats to agriculture and the environment from pests and diseases, protecting natural habitats from invasive species, and improving access to scientific knowledge.

CABI is committed to making a difference, playing its part in creating a brighter, more equitable and sustainable future.


Through our projects we work in partnership with our member countries, donors and partners to help farmers grow more and lose less, combat threats to agriculture and the environment and improve access to scientific information.
