Improving lives by solving problems in agriculture and the environment

International development

International development

International development is the process of improving the quality of life and economic wellbeing of people.

CABI has been collating information on the issues affecting livelihoods and economies globally since 1959. Our publications and other resources enable extension workers to provide better advice to smallholder farmers  on agricultural practice, helping them lose less of their crops to pests and diseases, improve crop quality and yield, and sell their produce for better prices.

Our products also help researchers and policymakers develop strategies that support agriculture and the environment, and ultimately improve livelihoods.
