The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) is an international non-profit organization that undertakes scientific research for development.
Our approach is through partnerships and with an Inclusive Market-Oriented Development.
Partnerships are critical as ICRISAT takes a catalyst role to help rural communities develop their own solutions and engage the actors needed to bring the vision to reality.
Inclusive means we are inclusive of the farmers in developing solutions and inclusive of all people especially women and youth.
Market Oriented Development means we focus our research and development efforts on making farming profitable, helping move farmers from subsistence to commercial operators.
