The Center’s scientists work alongside their Ethiopian counterparts on a wide range of research for development initiatives – including the development and distribution of high-yielding, disease-resistant wheat varieties, and the promotion of integrated crop-livestock production systems.

‘Given this strategic importance, agreements were signed with two important Ethiopian partners – the Ethiopian Biodiversity Institute (EBI) and the Ethiopia Institute of Agricultural Research (EIAR).’
