Post-conflict rebuilding of food & agricultural systems: Agricultural know-how, technologies and capacity development sustain peace-building and rural livelihoods
For 40 years, ICARDA has worked with drylands countries to improve the performance of their national agricultural systems. This includes expertise in rebuilding agricultural systems after conflict. Today, ICARDA runs research for development activities in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, and Yemen. The center’s post conflict know-how directly supports Norway’s development priorities – specifically in the areas of work in fragile states, peace building; combating climate change; and ensuring lasting food and nutrition security.
