Bioversity International

Bioversity International is a research-for-development organization working with partners worldwide to use and conserve agricultural and forest biodiversity for improved livelihoods, nutrition, sustainability and productive and resilient ecosystems.

Bioversity is working towards a world in which smallholder farming communities in developing countries of Africa, Asia and the Americas are thriving and sustainable. We focus on rain-fed farming systems, primarily managed by smallholder farmers, in areas where large-scale agriculture is not a viable option. Our research influences policy decisions and investment in agricultural research, from the local level to the global level.

Bioversity International is a member of the CGIAR Consortium, a global partnership that unites organizations engaged in research for a food secure future.
