GatesFoundationLogo.jpg
Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life. Ethiopia is an important focus country for the foundation, which currently provides funding to partner organizations that are operating health and development programs across the nation. That includes funding to help small farmers increase food production, as well as grants to expand access to childhood vaccines, maternal and child health programs, financial services for the poor, safe water and sanitation, and other effective, low-cost innovations.

ciat_logo.jpg
The International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) works to reduce hunger and poverty, and improve human nutrition in the tropics through research aimed at increasing the eco-efficiency of agriculture. CIAT is headquartered in Colombia. Backed by the Colombian government and Rockefeller, Ford, and Kellogg Foundations, CIAT was formally established in 1967 and began its research in 1969. CIAT develops technologies, methods, and knowledge that better enable farmers, mainly smallholders, to enhance eco-efficiency in agriculture.

CIFOR.jpg
The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) is a non-profit, global facility dedicated to advancing human well-being, environmental conservation and equity. Its research activities focus on enhancing the role of forests in climate mitigation and in adapting to climate change, on improving livelihoods through smallholder and community forestry, on managing trade-offs between conservation and development at landscape level, on managing the impacts of globalized trade and investment on forests and forest communities, and on sustainable management of tropical production forests. Research activities in Ethiopia focus mainly on improving livelihoods through community and smallholder forestry. To build national capacity, projects are implemented in partnership with national forestry research and education institutes.

ICARDA_logo.jpg
Established in 1977, the mission of the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) is to help fight hunger and poverty through research and training to increase the production, productivity and sustainability of farming systems in the dry areas. ICARDA researches food crops, water and land management, rangelands and small-ruminant production (sheep and goats), and a wide variety of related socio-economic and policy issues. ICARDA’s mandate extends over non-tropical arid regions in developing countries; this covers a massive area of the world where poverty and food supply issues are endemic. ICARDA Ethiopia coordinators a wide range of research activities being implemented in collaboration with NARS.

icrisat-logo.jpg
The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) is a non-profit, non-political organization that conducts agricultural research for development in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. A member of the CGIAR Consortium, ICRISAT is headquartered in Hyderabad, India, with two regional hubs in Africa – Nairobi and Bamako. The Ethiopia country office focuses on increasing dryland cereal (sorghum and millet) and grain legume (chickpea, pigeonpea and groundnut) productivity, watershed management and research on markets, institutions and policies. ICRISAT’s conceptual framework of Inclusive Market-Oriented Development (IMOD) relies on proactively including the poor in research by enabling them with diverse, purposeful, innovative and action-oriented partnerships, more productive and resilient technologies, and supportive policies.

IFPRI_logo.jpg
The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) focuses on reducing poverty and ending hunger and malnutrition through policy research, communications and capacity strengthening. IFPRI’s strategic areas include environment and production technology; markets, trade and institutions; poverty, health and nutrition; and development strategy and
governance. IFPRI’s headquarters are in Washington, DC. Addis Ababa hosts the Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office. The regional office contributes to food security, poverty reduction, and improved livelihood for the people of the region by conducting research, capacity strengthening and advocacy activities on knowledge management and agricultural education; health and nutrition; provision and access to inputs and rural services; access to output markets; and social protection and social safety net.

IFAD_logo.jpg
The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) country office has been based on the campus since August 2011. IFAD is a specialized agency of the United Nations. Its work is focused on poor rural people and their livelihoods and food security and on small-scale agriculture as a crucial source of income and nutrition for many poor rural households, and a driver of rural economic growth. IFAD provides loans to its developing member states on highly concessional, intermediate and ordinary terms for approved projects and programs. IFAD also provides grants to institutions and organizations in support of activities to strengthen technical and institutional capacities linked to agricultural and rural development.
