Food security in the developing world: practical projects, education and training


The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) makes a real difference to the lives of thousands of people in developing countries and ensures that its multidisciplinary expertise is shared widely. The scientific and educational work in some eighty countries draws together its skills in a wide range of natural and social science disciplines, in collaboration with academic and research institutions, governments, nongovernmental organisations, aid donors and the private sector. Its food security projects have resulted in improved access to safe supplies of food, increasing farmers’ incomes and aiding economic stability in some of the world’s poorest countries.
