A new digital hub to consolidate learnings from global food legume initiatives
- Impact Area
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
To enable crop researchers and policymakers access information on the three Tropical Legumes projects under one roof, a digital hub has been developed to capture learnings and impacts of crop varietal development and distribution initiatives taken up under the projects. Developed by Scriptoria, the hub has a resource center with over 250 vital resources, from scientific articles to policy briefs, and interactive country maps. The projects’ impacts are brought to life in an engaging, highly visual digital story.
Implemented over a 12-year period with US$ 67 million in funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ICRISAT worked with two other CGIAR research organizations – Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT and International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) – and national and regional partners across 15 countries.
