ICRAF's mission is to harness the multiple benefits trees provide for agriculture, livelihoods, resilience and the future of our planet, from farmersâ€™ fields through to continental scales.
ICRAF works with cross-sectoral and transdisciplinary approaches with greatest attention around four priority themes:
- Improving Governance of Tree Crop Landscapes for Resilient Green Economies, Climate Change and Sustainable Environmental Services.
- Land Health Evaluation, Restoration and Investment Decisions.
- Resilient Productivity and Profitability of Agricultural Systems with Trees.
- Tree Productivity and Diversity: Realizing Economic and Ecological Value from Tree Genetic Resources.
The themes are supported by a Science Quality Platform and an Accelerating Impact, Learning and Capacity Development Platform.
The organization's beneficiaries include: scientists, policy makers, NGOs, civil society, other CGIAR research centres, people and agricultural systems in more than 28 countries.
