ICARDA continued to play a critical role in the development, improvement, and dissemination of climate-resilient crop varieties last year. The varieties strengthened food and nutritional security and provided a critical defense against extreme temperatures, water scarcity, and the emergence of new pests and diseases.
In Uzbekistan, where agriculture is an important source of income for rural population, land degradation is a major challenge for the environment and the food security. The traditional focus of rainfed agriculture on production of grains with intensive mechanical soil tillage leads to depletion and loss of topsoil. Growing legume crops like chickpeas, can improve the soils.
This evaluation assessed strategic positioning of the first phase of the FAO-Turkey programme, its results and contributions, sustainability, as well as coherence and catalytic effects.

Agriculture in Eastern Europe and Central Asia is diverse, and has great potential to revitalize the economy of the countries in the region via improved productivity (efficiency) and higher total yield for food, fodder and fibre crops. Conservation agriculture can rise to the major challenge of making sustainable intensification of production systems a reality.
