What are we doing?
We generate scientific resources and information that will enable policy makers, conservation biologists, multinational companies and individuals to use land in a way that will maximise crop outputs and protect ‘hotspots’ of species diversity.
Why is it important?
Ensuring food and fuel security around the world in the 21st century is a major challenge that requires innovative research in plant sciences.
How are we different?
We are unique in the way we bring together three pinnacles of food security: improving crop production, promoting species conservation, and protecting forested land. The research data and insights from these programmes will alleviate global food security concerns by enabling more informed decision-making by the world’s leaders and opinion-formers.
