Global

In fragile and conflict-affected settings and host communities, hunger, severe malnutrition, and water insecurity are on the rise, directly impacting the resilience of food, land and water systems. The interplay of these issues often gives rise to conflict and forced migration, with women and other marginalized groups disproportionately affected due to their limited access to channels of power and influence during shocks and crises.

Unveiling diversity for quality traits in the Indian landraces of Horsegram [Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam.) Verdc.]

Dezembro, 2022
Global

Horsegram (Macrotyloma uniflorum [Lam.] Verdc.) is an underutilized pulse crop primarily cultivated in South Asian countries like India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. It offers various nutraceutical properties and demonstrates remarkable resilience to both biotic and abiotic stresses. As a result, it has emerged as a promising crop for ensuring future food and nutritional security. The purpose of this study was to assess the nutritional profile of 139 horsegram germplasm lines obtained from 16 Indian states that were conserved at the National Gene Bank of India.

Based on extensive grower data from PepsiCo, we built climate-yield models specifically for it and came up with results about climate risks and opportunities for its potato production. The results were then translated into actionable insights to incorporate into its sustainability roadmaps. PepsiCo used the Climate Resilience Platform, an online website developed from this project, to identify future climate risks and to better prioritize adaptation practices, thereby increasing its supply chain resilience across 10 countries of its potato program.
