November 20, 2013

The International Crop Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) has recently opened a country office in Ethiopia. The institute has made various past contributions and  projects in the past to enhance the productivity of sorghum and chickpea.

Ethiopia, with more than 47 percent of land area under semi-arid environments is one of ICRISAT's high priority countries. The Ethiopia country office is expected to strengthen ongoing research work, expand the reach, and enlarge the portfolio of activities in the country. By opening the office, ICRISAT demonstrates its commitment to partner and work with the Government of Ethiopia and its national institutes to realize the goal of achieving food security, reducing poverty, and protecting the environment in the country.
