Major Impacts of CSISA in India 2012-2015

Major Impacts of CSISA

South Asia has the largest number of poor and undernourished in the world. Cereal crops – rice, wheat and maize – provide staple food for a half-billion people living on less than US$ 1.25 a day. Land degradation, water scarcity and climate change are slowing the cereal productivity growth in the region, posing steep challenges for both rural livelihoods and food security.

Working together with national research and extension systems, research institutes, state governments, non-governmental organizations, private companies and farmers in India, CSISA helped to generate access and increase affordability of modern technologies, practices and new varieties to improve agricultural yields and farmers’ incomes in a sustainable manner. This publication captures some of those impacts, achieved during our second phase, 2012 to 2015, made possible through the continued support of our partners and donors.
