SAFEnewSAFE Hub - Sustainable Agriculture From Ecological-intensification

The SAFE Hub is a new global consortium of research and development organisations aiming to address the future challenge of global food security by developing improved and innovative guidelines, training and implementation of to transform sustainable agricultural practices.

Particulary, the SAFE Hub will focus on ecological intensification - increase of yield via harnessing and supporting ecosystems services such as pollination and natural pest regulation. This requires a thorough understanding of the relationship between smallholder and large-scale farms and their surrpounding landscapes and agro-ecosystems. The SAFE Hub also promotes sustainable and environmentally benign technologies in the context of controlling pests, weeds and diseases.

The SAFE Hub brings together partners from the UK, Africa, South America, East Asia and South Asia to collaborate in research, development, knowledge transfer and policy development to work for secure, resilient food systems worldwide, with particular focus on smallholders and the poorest food producers.
