WHERE WE WORK

SARD-SC works across eleven countries in sub-Saharan Africa, alongside national partners to raise their wheat productivity, reduce import dependence, and strengthen food security. 

Innovations and technologies are tested and validated in three hub countries - Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Sudan - and disseminated via 'innovation platforms,' a proven participatory research dissemination strategy that brings together all stakeholder groups to identify challenges and jointly define the solutions required to overcome these challenges. 

From Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Sudan, technologies and practices are scaled-out to neighbouring countries.
