Partnerships & Impact Directorate

The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) partners with a wide range of organizations to ensure that breakthroughs in agroforestry science are adopted and brought to scale throughout the developing world. Without robust and effective partnerships, even the most groundbreaking innovations will fail to reach the smallholder farmers whose livelihoods ICRAF’s research aims to transform.  

The Partnerships & Impact Directorate, which is headed by Dr. Margaret Kroma, is responsible for guiding and managing those partnerships, as well as working to scale up - and monitor - ICRAF's impact on farms and in forests across the developing world.
