Les organisateurs

  • CCAFS

    The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will address the increasing challenge of global warming and declining food security on agricultural practices, policies and measures through a strategic collaboration between CGIAR and Future Earth. Led by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), CCAFS is a collaboration among all 15 CGIAR research centres and coordinates with the other CGIAR research programs. Learn more about our people. All CGIAR centres have a stake in CCAFS, and numerous Centres have considerable climate change expertise and activities. In addition, there is an on-going commitment to a major international partner (Future Earth).

  • CTA

    Le Centre technique de coopération agricole et rurale (CTA) est une institution internationale conjointe des États du Groupe ACP (Afrique, Caraïbes, Pacifique) et de l’Union européenne (UE). Il intervient dans les pays ACP pour améliorer la sécurité alimentaire, la résilience et la croissance économique à travers des innovations durables dans le domaine agricole. Le CTA opère dans le cadre de l’Accord de Cotonou et est financé par l’UE.

  • Syngenta Foundation

    The Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture is a not-for-profit organization that focuses on supporting the productivity of small-scale farmers in developing countries around the world. The mission is to create value for resource-poor small farmers in developing countries through innovation in sustainable agriculture and the activation of value chains. The operational strategy of the Syngenta Foundation focuses on smallholders, productivity, and markets. The Foundation works with partners in developing countries and emerging markets. The aim is to help small farmers become more professional growers. The Syngenta Foundation does this by extending science-based know-how, facilitating access to quality inputs, and linking smallholders to markets in profitable ways. This adds value for rural communities, and sustainably improves food security.
