Global Plan

The global plan is directed toward attaining the SM-CRSP's goal of achieving food security in regions of the world where hunger and poverty are highest, and enabling its clients to do so without compromising the sustainability of agroenvironments. The plan gives priority to the food insecure regions of Africa, Asia, and Latin America where most of the 700 million food insecure people live.

The SM-CRSP will contribute to the on-going international effort to reduce food insecurity by focusing on the following objectives:

  1. Enable developing country institutions to apply information technology and knowledge-based tools to increase agricultural productivity.

  2. Enable developing country institutions to scale-up technology adoption by farmers from local to regional scales.

  3. Strengthen human and institutional capacity to combat poverty, land degradation and food insecurity.
