The Impact Through Innovation Fund will match Cornell researchers with CARE development professionals on specific projects. Special focus will be given to "research-based solutions" that help food insecure women and families.
One project that the CARE-Cornell will focus on is in Ethiopia. Here, they will explore indigenous bio-fertilizers made from local waste products to see if these are viable alternatives to costly imported chemical fertilizers. Another project is in Mozambique were food insecurity increases the health problems for HIV-infected women and their infants.
