The CGIAR Research Program MAIZE is an international collaboration between more than 300 partners from the public and private sectors, national institutions, international research organizations and seed companies. This unique partnership seeks to mobilize global resources in maize research and development to achieve a greater strategic impact on maize-based farming systems in Africa, South Asia and Latin America.
Zimbabwean farmer Steven Seremwe is one of about 250,000 farmers who have benefited from biofortified vitamin A maize through the Zimbabwe Livelihoods and Food Security Programme (LFSP).
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out requirements for improving the livelihoods of all beings on Earth. How does maize align with and support the SDG narrative?
Researchers have found a link suggesting that supporting and building upon indigenous agricultural practices could lead to a decline in forced migration.
As we look forward to 2020, here’s a recap of some of the exciting MAIZE activities and accomplishments of 2019:
Farming systems are moving targets. Agricultural Research and Development (R&D) must understand where they come from and where they are going to offer solutions that are adapted.
Feeding the world is about more than just satisfying stomachs. Food scientists and nutritionists have long recognized that the foods we eat not only need to fill us up, but nourish our bodies as well.
