Bioversity International: research for development in agricultural and tree biodiversity

Funding partners

Funding partners

Agricultural biodiversity provides vital options for future generations to attain sustainable global food and nutrition security.

Bioversity International’s work is possible thanks to the financial support of our funding partners. In other words our funding partners enable the collaboration with our strategic partners on research, development and in bringing technologies and innovations to scale, as well as the hard work of our scientists and support staff that all contribute to our continued success.

Over the years, we have enriched our portfolio with new partnerships – also through the participation in networks and consortia - and received critical support from many funding partners, including CGIAR, governments and institutions, foundations and other international organizations, the private sector, universities and NGOs.

We gratefully acknowledge our funding partners’ commitment, support and contributions.

Examples of activities undertaken through support from a couple of our long-standing partners:


One of the ways Bioversity International receives funding is through the CGIAR Fund.

The Fund is a multi-donor, multi-year funding mechanism that provides strategic financing to support agricultural research.
