Food security and International Development


Research in this area examines the interface between the biological sciences and society. Projects examine global regulations on genetic material, adaptation to climate change in economically developing and developed countries, and new institutional designs for precompetitive genomic research. The research aims to develop solutions that facilitate material and information flows to address critical global problems such as climate change and food security.

The primary aim of DivSeek is “to enable breeders and researchers to mobilize…plant genetic variation to accelerate the rate of crop improvement”.

Climate Smart Technology Network (CSTNets) is part of the 2014-2019 Climate Change for Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) Flagship Four initiative.
