Since its establishment, the International Center for Agricultural research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), based in Aleppo, Syria, has worked side by side with scientists and technicians in all parts of the Arab world to not only breed new, more productive crops, but also to strengthen and conserve important human and natural resources that underpin agriculture in the region.
ICARDA is the only international center which is concentrating its research on the Arab and Islamic countries in particular. It has a growing role in promoting the Arab world's capacity for comprehensive, sustainable agricultural development, thanks to the support provided by several countries and international bodies-notably the World Bank, the Arab Fund for Social and Economic Development, the OPEC Fund, and the Islamic Bank for Development.
