The Consortium for Improving Agriculture-based Livelihoods in Central Africa (CIALCA) is an innovative research-for-development partnership operating in Burundi, DR Congo and Rwanda, and supported by Belgian Development Cooperation (DGD).

Embedded within the Humidtropics framework, CIALCA uses integrated systems research and unique collaboration platforms for better impact on poverty and eco-systems integrity.

By building on 9 years of investments and partnership, CIALCA is able to jump-start activities and mobilize networks to boost farmers’ incomes from integrated systems intensification, while preserving their land for future generations. There is focus on value-chains and markets, natural resource improvement and the scaling of successful technologies and approaches.
