IITA-led CGIAR Research Program (CRP) 1.2, entitled “Humidtropics: Integrated Systems for the Humid Tropics.” Humidtropics will increase development options and strengthen the capacity of the poor and vulnerable in the humid tropics to improve their livelihoods and living environment based on promising agricultural systems’ innovations and technologies. Humidtropics fulfils a key integrative function for all 15 CRPs’ research activities of relevance to the humid tropics and provides a unique balance between productivity enhancement, natural resources integrity and institutional issues.
Humidtropics is about partnerships to help the poor and vulnerable in the humid tropics of Africa, Asia and Americas. The Humid and Sub-Humid agro-ecologies cover 3.5 billion hectares with 2.6 billion people (see map below). We welcome good ideas, new partners, investments and any other kind of support to make this a success and achieve impact where it is most needed.
