The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) is a non-profit agricultural research-for-development (R4D) organization, and a member of the CGIAR Consortium.

IITA has aligned all its research programs to the new CGIAR Research Programs. We conduct research on the following thematic areas: Biotechnology and genetic improvement, Natural resource management, Social science and agribusiness, and Plant production and plant health.

We are involved in nine CGIAR Research Programs, namely, those on the (1) integrated systems for the humid tropics, (2) policies, institutions, and markets, (3) maize, (4) roots, tubers, and bananas, (5) grain legumes, (6) agriculture for improved nutrition and health, (7) water, land, and ecosystems, (8) climate change, agriculture, and food security, and (9) genebank.

We lead the CGIAR Research Program on Integrated Systems for the Humid Tropics (Humidtropics) which addresses challenges in agricultural systems in the humid tropics. This CGIAR Research Program gives us an umbrella for all other CGIAR Research Programs which are components of the system. These could be commodity programs, such as maize, cassava, banana, or legumes, which could provide the institutional framework for socioeconomic studies, market, policies, and natural resource management. This CGIAR Research Program will have a major impact in attaining system-level outcomes.
