This webinar focuses on the experience and lessons learned in mainstreaming scaling from HarvestPlus. The HarvestPlus program works across CGIAR as part of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). HarvestPlus fights hunger worldwide by scaling new, climate smart, high yielding, competitive varieties of staple crops that are nutrient enriched, making food systems more nutritious and inclusive.

It has reached 100 million consumers as of 2023. The program includes a presentation by HarvestPlus and in-country private and NGO partners.
