Annual Report
2015 - 2016

Working with the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania, scientists at CIAT are helping to drive large investment – both internal and external – in the region, by developing an online tool that provides investors with information about what risks their projects may face in a given area. Among other properties, the tool is expected to be able to provide those looking to invest with information related to crop suitability, water and irrigation access, various topographical features, and the proximity of special zones like wildlife corridors. With this information in hand, investors will have the ability to explore new regions and projects that were once deemed too risky because basic information was not readily available.
