Nutrition proofing the drylands: The Seed to Diet approach

At a time when the world is focusing on three global challenges – food security, nutrition and climate resilience – ICRISAT’s learnings and research over four decades on hardy dryland crops in semi-arid ecologies have never been more relevant. Encapsulating the organization’s approach to nutrition as succinctly as possible, we are proud to make a positioning statement “Why it is critical to nutrition-proof drylands” and present to you an interesting slideshow that will walk you through the gamut of work from seed to diet.

The work spans breeding improved and biofortified varieties, nutrition ecology, nutrigenomics and diet studies, influencing policy, creating a market pull through development of nutripreneurs and driving awareness through advocacy and the Smart Food initiative.

Partnerships nurtured with governments, National Agricultural Research Systems, State Agricultural Universities, CGIAR centers and public and private enterprises is reaping dividends, powering ICRISAT on its onward journey to fulfil its mission and give wing to its belief that all people have a right to nutritious food and a better livelihood.
