Our vision is that agrobiodiversity is conserved and sustainably utilized thereby contributing to poverty alleviation, socio-economic development and environmental conservation in Africa.
Our mission is to promote and facilitate the adoption of innovations and technologies for agrobiodiversity conservation and utilization by institutions and rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa for sustenance of livelihoods, income generation, food security and environmental conservation.
We implement our mandate through applied research, technical advice and strengthening of African institutions involved in agrobiodiversity conservation and use, value chains and capacity building. We develop strategic partnerships and work in close collaboration with a network of partners for synergy and making the best use of competitive advantages.
Our core values include pursuit of excellence in empowering African institutions and communities to transform agrobiodiversity into tangible goods and services for both environmental conservation and improvement of the socio-economic well being.
