The International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) is a research center whose mandate is to promote agricultural development in the world’s dry areas, located predominantly in developing countries. The rise of droughts and desertification of agricultural land has intensified the work of ICARDA. ICARDA engages in the in-field delivery of its research outputs, specifically with helping to solve the obstacles faced by resource-poor farmers. The aims are to help alleviate the larger problems of food insecurity and poverty while promoting sustainable growth in agriculture. Some of the interventions on the field by ICARDA include helping with water harvesting, conservation agriculture, diversification of production systems, integrated crop/rangeland/livestock production systems, and the empowerment of rural women.
