Rwanda is a small, rural, densely populated country. With a majority of its population being poor and food insecure, Rwanda needs sustainable solutions to improve the productivity of its climate-sensitive smallholder agriculture. Integrated approaches for soil and water conservation, staple crop improvement as well as raising the standards of agricultural value chains are among the fields of research collaboration between Rwanda and ICRISAT.
