CIRAD's 1140 scientists conduct targeted research focused on six priority research topics, aimed at building resilient farming systems for a more sustainable, inclusive world.

On the strength of its experience of working in some fifty countries across Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific, CIRAD has drawn up a geographical partnership strategy, centring on the implementation of platforms in partnership for research and training.

CIRAD and its partners pool their means to help the scientific community access original, top-level biological, scientific and technical resources. These collective tools, resources and infrastructures are accessible to all our partners via collaborative projects or training.
