To limit SDS threats to global drylands' rural livelihoods, population health, and economies, ICARDA partnered with FAO in October 2020 to implement the 'Catalyzing investments and actions to enhance resilience against Sand and Dust Storms in agriculture' project. The project aims to address SDS-related challenges on small dryland family farmers by working side-by-side with donors, academic institutions, partner countries, and local community members across the drylands. Together with ICARDA's research teams involved in this project, the pooling of such extensive and evidence-based scientific knowledge and expertise delivers new approaches and innovations to boost the resilience of dryland agricultural systems and improve farmers' livelihoods.
