Bioversity International works around 500 partners who are critical if we are to reach our research-for-development goals. Partners include research institutes, universities, development agencies, government departments, community-based organizations and the private sector. 

In the countries where we work, we are expanding partnerships to include local, national and global agri-food value chain actors, timber concessionaries and conservation organizations. We are working through key partnerships to integrate agricultural biodiversity into research, development and education programmes. 

We are a member of the CGIAR Consortium - a global partnership for a food-secure future. Within CGIAR, we work on 10 cross-cutting global research programmes including climate change, nutrition and forests.

We also work in close partnership with the United Nations Rome-based organizations: Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme.
