Who we are

The International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) is a global research-for-development organization.  We envision thriving and resilient livelihoods in dryland communities of the developing world coming with robust incomes, secure access to food, markets, nutrition and health and the capacity to manage natural resources in equitable, sustainable and innovative ways. Since its establishment in 1977 as a non-for-profit organization, ICARDA has implemented research for development programs in more than 50 countries in the world’s dry areas, spanning from Morocco in North Africa to Bangladesh in South Asia.

What we do

Our mission is to provide innovative science-based solutions for improving the resilience and livelihoods of the resource-poor in dry areas. We aim to end poverty and enhance food and water security through the sustainable management of natural resources in the face of climate change.  By applying cutting-edge science we develop strategic partnerships and capacities for regional institutions and farmers’ organizations to ensure inclusive and equitable growth.
