Solving Global Climate and Nutrition Challenges Depends on Accelerated Crop Breeding

Humanity’s future is intertwined with the earth’s plants. We need plants for livelihoods, for medicines, for manufacturing, for services such as recycling carbon dioxide. And most vitally, we need them to feed our growing populations. CGIAR’s new Accelerated Breeding Initiative is streamlining breeding across CGIAR and NARES to bring better results, faster, in farmers’ fields.
