The Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP) funds 85 agriculture research projects in the Andes and Africa. CCRP’s work has an Agroecological Intensification (AEI) focus based on using ecological principles to sustainably cultivate land. The emphasis is on principles, because the actual practices will vary according to social and ecological contexts. AEI is part of a broader global movement on agroecology.
