You are here: Home / What we do / Responding to emerging threats

CABI is committed to working with our member countries, partners, researchers, and farmers to address global concerns of food and nutritional security, global health, and climate change.

Our response

Whenever there is an emerging threat, such as an invasive outbreak, or a crisis that disrupts the flow of information to farmers, CABI looks to support communities by leveraging its specialised knowledge in agriculture and the environment. We mobilize our extensive experience in research, knowledge sharing and providing online resources to make sure that people have timely access to relevant scientific information, enabling them to respond to the threat at hand.
