Our Impact

For the period 2017-2020 CIALCA will deliver that by the end of the project: (i) at least 20 private and public scaling partners are using CIALCA innovations in their respective scaling initiatives; (ii) CIALCA products and interventions have been integrated in large-scale investments from development banks; (iii) policy guidelines, generated by CIALCA, have been incorporated in agricultural development strategies; (iv) at least 15,000 households in the Great Lakes Region are advancing towards commercially-oriented farming though improving sustainable productivity with 25%, household income with 20%, and diet quality of communities with 20% in East DR Congo, Rwanda and Burundi.

CIALCA contributes to the CGIAR’s Strategic Results Framework (SRF) by aligning with the CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Roots Tubers and Banana (RTB) and by bridging to the CRPs on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health, (A4NH), and Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).

The primary contribution of CIALCA will be on SDG 2 (Zero Hunger), but also on SDGs 1, 3, 5, 10, 13 and 17.
