The Rockefeller Foundation Cassava Innovation Challenge
The Rockefeller Foundation, Dalberg, and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) have launched The Rockefeller Foundation Cassava Innovation Challenge to address food loss and spoilage in the cassava value chain. The Challenge will provide up to $1 million, as well as technical assistance from Dalberg and IITA, to further develop novel solutions that increase shelf life.
The Challenge is open to all organizations—whether for-profit or nonprofit—including governmental and inter-governmental organizations. Collaborations between organizations are encouraged. Where such collaboration exists, one lead applicant must submit on the behalf of the group.
