Bioversity International is the only global non-profit research organization that places the use and conservation of agricultural biodiversity in smallholder farming systems at the centre of its work.
Our research benefits smallholder farmers in developing countries, most of them living in poverty, who produce 60% of the world’s food.
Our research influences policy decisions and investment in agricultural research, from the local level to the global level. From local traditions to global treaties, our work creates new
opportunities for economic development, health and sustainability. For almost 40 years, Bioversity International has been producing research solutions. Our organization now includes more than 300 scientists and staff based in more than 15 countries. Our scientists include experts in the fields of plant science, agronomy, agroecology, nutrition, economics, forestry, geography, anthropology and more disciplines. They work with partners on the ground to create change and add diversity to our agricultural systems.
