APSAN : Enhancing crop productivity and climate resilience for Food and Nutrition Security in Mali
The global objective of the project is to contribute to sustainably increasing crop productivity and farmers' income in the context of climate change. Thus, the project specifically aims at:(1) increasing agricultural productivity in the face of population growth and climate change trough the promotion of varieties developed under previous projects, (2) improving resilience of smallholder farmers to climate change and economic vulnerability through an innovative demand-driven and modern breeding schemes, (3) achieving more efficiently exchanges of genetic material and data at the regional scale, and (4) sustainably strengthening research teams in crop improvement.
