About CIP / Mission statement
The International Potato Center (CIP) seeks to reduce poverty and achieve food security on a sustained basis in developing countries through scientific research and related activities on potato, sweetpotato, and other root and tuber crops and on the improved management of natural resources in the Andes and other mountain areas.
CIP is part of the global agricultural research network known as the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).
CIP contributes to the CGIAR in a limited research area defined by commodities (potato, sweetpotato, and Andean root and tuber crops) and ecoregions, in CIP’s case the Andes. CIP, in close association with national research systems, selects priority activities within these major work areas. These priorities are continually refined against changes in the way crops are grown, as well as changes in science and in national programs.
Increasingly, CIP employs its expertise in convening global research initiatives that involve a range of institutions that can contribute to the Center’s objectives. As opportunities arise, research is conducted in partner and client institutions around the world.
