The development challenge addressed by CRP 3.5 GRAIN LEGUMES will be to apply crop improvement and related high-priority value-chain interventions to maximize the benefits that grain legumes offer to smallholder farmers, especially women, by increasing their incomes, securing their food supplies, improving their nutrition and sustainably intensifying their farming systems. In short: leveraging legumes to benefit the poor. The fouenters leading this program are ICRISAT, CIAT, ICARDA and IITA. Approved with conditions by Fund Council in November 2011; revised version was approved by Fund Council at its 7th meeting in March 2012.
