Focus Countries and Regions
For 20 years, the Sustainable Agricultural and Natural Resource Management Collaborative Research Support Program, or SANREM CRSP, worked to use the science of conservation agriculture to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the developing world. The Sustainable Intensification Innovation Lab’s portfolio builds upon these achievements, focusing attention on the regions of West Africa, East Africa, South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Specifically, we support research projects and initiatives in Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Niger, Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania, Bangladesh, and Cambodia.
These countries were identified based on the presence of poverty and malnutrition, yield gaps and opportunities for sustainable intensification (SI) and the enabling environments and commitments of national agricultural research systems (NARS) that are conducive to SI.
