Humanity and the planet that is our home are facing very strong pressures with interconnected crises in biodiversity, climate, environment and nutrition. This is why Bioversity International and CIAT joined forces to create an Alliance. Today, we are very excited to launch our new strategy that will work in a unique way at the nexus of agriculture, environment and nutrition and bring impact at scale.
We have brought together the best of our capacities that we have built for decades and will lead the way on food environment and consumer behavior, multifunctional landscapes, climate action, biodiversity for food and agriculture, digital inclusion, and crops for nutrition and health. These are all the pressure points where the Alliance can play a catalytic role and our interventions can trigger multiplier effects for positive change.
We are now a truly global organization. With enhanced capacity, we will work together across several continents. We have our Headquarters in Rome, Italy, working closely with our regional hubs in Colombia, Kenya and Vietnam to coordinate our work in the Americas, Africa and Asia. This expanded scope means we can join policy dialogues at the global level, ensuring that they connect with what happens on the ground.
