Strengthening of the Biofortified Bean Value Chain in Native People of Latin America and the Caribbean

Approximately 53 million people suffer from malnutrition in Latin America and the Caribbean. Consequences include low birth weight and anemia. Biofortification enhances the nutrient content in crops through conventional breeding practices, addressing deficiencies in iron, zinc, and vitamin A in the human body. Biofortified crops exhibit improved agronomic characteristics and provide higher levels ...

Traditional Varietal Seeds Offering Centers: A Model for Strengthening Informal Seed System and Increase Competitiveness of Family Agriculture

In Latin America, 80-90 % of producers belong to the Family Agriculture (FA) sector. This group occupies between 14 to 70% of the agricultural area of Latin American countries and contributes 27-67 % of agricultural GDP. For some species of economic importance, between 50 to 90% of crop production is carried out using traditional seeds through self-production or through transactions in local marke...

Biointensive Cultive for Rural Families in the Dry Corridor

The Central American Dry Corridor is one of most vulnerable regions to the effects of climate change worldwide, which has already meant longer dry periods that intensify when the El Niño phenomenon is present, reducing rainfall by between 40% and 60%, as has happened during 2014 and 2015. All this translates into high levels of food insecurity in rural areas caused by insufficient and unstable fo...

Innovation network for research and development: towards efficient dissemination and pro-poor impact mechanisms based on new potato varieties in the Andean region

The Andean countries have made progress in potato breeding, but innovations are still needed for low-income people in marginal high-Andean areas. The gap is a consequence of the weak articulation of research systems with development agents and grassroots organizations, the incompatibility between formal seed systems and peasant ("informal") systems, the limited systematization and replication of e...
