Increasing agricultural productivity is essential to feeding a fast-growing population and has the potential to lift rural families out of poverty. Sustainable Agricultural Intensification (SAI) provides the means to do this with limited available resources, while protecting our living environment and conserving natural and agricultural biodiversity.
NRI’s work in this field includes managing agroecosystems to enhance natural pest regulation and reduce dependence on agrochemicals, and farmer-led research to improve nutrition, incomes and food safety. Read more in our latest Annual Review.
