This initiative supports innovative research to develop solutions to current food security issues and challenges relating to sustainable food production. It will translate research into measurable real-world outcomes that increase prosperity in sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia or southern Asia.
The sustainable enhancement of agriculture and aquaculture production initiative (SEAAP) supports high quality, innovative research translation to address current food security development and environmental challenges related to sustainable enhancement of food production.
The initiative aims to increase and speed up the uptake and impact of NERC and BBSRC funding into practical application, supporting multidisciplinary translation projects focused on a crop, livestock or aquaculture food production system. These will be balanced across the remit of NERC and BBSRC, and should seek to translate existing research in order to address global food production, sustainability and food security challenges.
This initiative will be impact-focused, translating excellent research into measurable real-world outcomes to raise economic and societal prosperity in Development Assistance Committee-listed countries in the sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia or southern Asian regions.
