To solve the world’s biggest challenges, we must ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning. By opening up and sharing information with the people who need it, and by applying the knowledge they gain, issues like climate change and food security can be addressed.
Connecting the dots: bringing together education, learning, resources and development projects
CABI produces key scientific publications, including CAB Abstracts and Global Health (world-leading databases covering applied life science). We also publish internet resources, compendia, books and eBooks aiming to further science and its application to real-world problems.
We gain synergy from combining our work in academic publishing with our work in international development, investing surpluses from our publishing business back into our development projects. The knowledge we collate is put to practical use by our scientists in the field, working in developing countries and helping to improve livelihoods worldwide.
In 2017, CABI launched the Horticulture Compendium, a new encyclopedic, mixed-media resource for information on horticultural food crops. Last year the CAB Direct platform, which provides a single point of access to all of CABI’s databases, won a CHOICE magazine ‘Outstanding Academic Title’ award 2017.
