The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), a member of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), has a mission to "reduce poverty, hunger, malnutrition and environmental degradation in the dryland tropics." The institute's research in Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa is focused on resilient dryland systems, grain legumes, dryland cereals, and markets, institutions and technologies. Headquartered in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, ICRISAT works to facilitate inclusive market-oriented development that seeks input from farm families operating in dryland areas. 

Dr. William Dar, Director General for ICRISAT, recently addressed Food Tank's questions about ICRISAT mandate crops, farmer prosperity, priorities for agricultural improvement in Africa, gender equality in farming, and open source data sharing.
