Feed the Future Newsletter, Issue 128, October 2023
Investments in research today pay dividends tomorrow. That’s the driving notion behind Feed the Future Innovation Labs, which connect researchers from top U.S. universities with their counterparts at partner country research institutions to together solve some of the world’s greatest agriculture and food security challenges. Each of these labs and their partnerships are critical parts of a global network that is reaching smallholder farmers with the tools, technology, and information they need — now more than ever — to stay productive and resilient. In this month’s issue we highlight the addition of two new Innovation Labs focused on climate-resilient cereals and irrigation, and a joint lab activity that will tackle a disease that causes devastating losses for pastoralists and small-scale farmers.
