Caravan 18-19: Rebuilding Agriculture in Countries Affected by Conflict and Drought
This issue of Caravan provides examples of activities undertaken by ICARDA and its partners to address challenges of rebuilding agriculture in the aftermath of conflicts and natural disasters, particularly in Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq, Eritrea, Sudan, and Ethiopia. The cycle of conflict, poverty, hunger and drought can be broken with application of cutting-edge science to ensure nutritional and food security. ICARDA is playing a vital role in encouraging advanced research institutions to collaborate in technology development, capacity building, technology transfer and policy research that will provide livelihood options for the millions caught in the consuming web of poverty and conflict.
