Millions of people suffer and die every year due to malnutrition, food insecurity, and poverty.
Help us change that.
Increasing water and land scarcity, climate change, and growing populations have made it harder than ever to feed the world. As agricultural problems continue to grow, rural communities in developing countries are struggling to adapt. Often reliant on conventional and wasteful agricultural practices, many developing farmers use more inputs to produce less food, trapping them in a cycle of food insecurity and poverty. Sustainable agricultural knowledge and technology needs to get to those who need it. IGATT is working to do just that.
