ICRISAT has re-conceptualized the use of its website and for the start of 2016 made its final launch. ICRISAT now has two corporate websites – one specifically designed for its scientific information (EXPLOREit.icrisat.org) and one that focuses on the big global issues we are working with partners (icrisat.org).
Dedicated sections to each of our “mission” areas:
- poverty and hunger
- environmental degradation
- climate change
A collated list and description of “proven technologies” So if you are looking for technologies that are science backed and ready for wider adoption these are listed here.
“Research facilities and services” section to highlight the research facilities available in all our sites that can be capitalized on by national systems and other researchers.
We have made a major effort to raise the voices of our partners.
This include three newly launched initiatives:
- 100 Voices – with video interviews on topical issues
- Take 2 – video highlights of science seminars
- Partners Voices – views from partners on their area of expertise
We also have a new impacts section summarizing many of our key impacts. Later we plan to add a centre wide dashboard collating these impacts.
You will also notice more use of short videos to better communicate the messages.
Our scientific site, EXPLOREit.icrisat.org provides profiles and data on all the major geographic locations, topics, crops and systems we work on. It also provides access to all our resources such as data, publications, stories, videos and photos.
More new concepts are in the pipeline for the website and we will keep you updated. We also welcome your feedback.
