This research program seeks to learn how to intensify farming activities, expand agricultural areas, and restore degraded lands while using natural resources wisely, minimizing harmful impacts on supporting ecosystems, and lifting millions of farm families out of poverty. The initiative takes a river basin and landscape view of these issues to provide solutions to widespread declines in soil fertility, water scarcity, and land degradation, including erosion and salinization. The program will consider how resources can be accessed and shared equitably, better governed, and more effectively managed by developing and adopting evidence-based approaches to increasing food production, improving livelihoods, and delivering ecosystem services, such as clean water and habitat, sustainably.
