An integrated approach to problems and the cooperation between various disciplines are at the heart of the unique approach of Wageningen.
At Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation we strengthen capacities for sustainable development in support of inclusive and sustainable food systems, through 'Knowledge in Action'. We do so through our unique approaches in fostering lifelong learning, guiding sector transformation, managing for impact, facilitating stakeholder collaboration and strengthening strategic leadership. A close connection between project implementation and capacity development characterises our work. In our work with clients from governments, businesses, civil society, NGOs and the academic world, our group of 50 scientific staff connects Wageningen University & Research's knowledge and expertise with the challenges to support inclusive and sustainable food systems in low and middle income countries.
