What We Do

SCALE partners with food security implementers and the broader research community to capture, generate, apply and share knowledge to foster more resilient agricultural systems and enhance income opportunities for the world’s most vulnerable.

Current priority technical areas for SCALE include: small-scale agroecological production solutions; social and behavior change approaches for agriculture, livelihoods and natural resource management-related activities; production in fragile and conflict-affected contexts; and youth engagement in alternative livelihoods. Please reach out to us if you are interested in collaborating on these or related activities.
