The AgCenter analyzes the tradeoffs and synergies between sustainable agricultural intensification, livelihoods and ecosystem services—searching for alternatives that minimize negative environmental effects while increasing yields and improving livelihoods.

Our approach integrates research, education, outreach and global partnerships.

We focus on three pillars — agriculture, environment, and livelihoods — with education and public awareness activities supporting all of our work. While each of the three pillars is important, it is the linkages among them that are essential for finding solutions to feeding our world sustainably.
