Global endorsement of CGIAR work: IITA wins Africa Food Prize
- Published on
The Africa Food Prize has been awarded to the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), a member of the CGIAR System Organization. The institute received the distinguished prize in Kigali, Rwanda, last week for ‘Leadership and Innovation in Finding Solutions to the Continent’s Most Pressing Challenges’.
IITA, based in Ibadan, Nigeria, was recognized for generating solutions on and off the farm that have improved the lives of millions in the face of climate change, a surge of crop pests and disease, and an urgent need for youth employment. This recognition reiterates CGIAR research endeavors to create a better future for the world’s poor.
