"Building knowledge that helps empower smallholder farmers in the developing world to create a secure, self-reliant and prosperous future for their families and communities."

Who we are

The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Assets and Market Access at UC Davis conducts and supports research on policies and programs designed to help poor and smallholder farmers worldwide to manage risk, adopt productive technologies and take an active part in economic growth. Operating with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), our researchers from across the globe are developing solutions that empower small-scale agriculturalists and their communities to build a resilient future free of the need for emergency aid.
