The Alliance

Our Vision
Food systems and landscapes that sustain the planet, drive prosperity, and nourish people.

Our Mission
We deliver research-based solutions that harness agricultural biodiversity and sustainably transform food systems to improve people’s lives in a climate crisis.

The Alliance of Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) delivers research-based solutions that address the global crises of malnutrition, climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation.

The Alliance focuses on the nexus of agriculture, nutrition and environment. We work with local, national, and multinational partners across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and with the public and private sectors and civil society. With novel partnerships, the Alliance generates evidence and mainstreams innovations to transform food systems and landscapes so that they sustain the planet, drive prosperity, and nourish people.

Who we are

Today’s interconnected global challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, environmental degradation, and malnutrition call for new research, solutions, innovations, and stronger partnerships that can deliver higher impact. Food systems are both a significant driver and a victim of these challenges. However, they can, and must, be part of the solution.

The Alliance and CGIAR

The Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT is a CGIAR Research Centre. CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food-secure future.
