TIGR2ESS: Transforming India's Green Revolution by Research and Empowerment for Sustainable food Supplies

A Global Challenges Research Fund project


At the end of the TIGR2ESS programme, a series of summative workshops were held on 19th and 27th January and 2nd February, followed by the final meeting of the TIGR2ESS International Advisory Board on Thursday 24th February 2022.   

The three workshops were themed as follows: 

  • Sustainable value chains and efficient water use 
  • Knowledge exchange for healthy and sustainable communities 
  • Crop science, resilience and diversification 

Speakers from the six multidisciplinary Flagship Projects summarised TIGR2ESS’ outcomes and impacts and shared their experience of the Programme's unique participatory methodology, interdisciplinarity and inclusivity.   

They focussed on its holistic approach to policy change for contrasting agroclimatic zones across India, the new knowledge TIGR2ESS has brought about, thanks to the complementary skills of the teams involved, and its real-world impacts.  

Going forward it is hoped that the strong networks and dynamic methodology that have been established under TIGR2ESS’ auspices will continue to thrive and find solutions to future challenges.
