International Development

Most of the world’s 570 million farms are small and family-operated. They produce 70% of the world’s food. Sharing better ways to grow food with such a large and diverse group is a big challenge.

A global shift is underway. Research and sustainable farming practices are changing futures.

This series showcases the motivations, experiences and impact of our International Development Unit staff and the growers, scientists, partners and business owners working on Plant & Food Research programmes from Kenya to the Caribbean.
