We Are

MSSRF Family

Community Agrobiodiversity Centre (CAbC) was established in 1997 at Wayanad district of Kerala, as one of the regional centres of M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF), Chennai, India. The Centre was established to promote community conservation systems of rural and tribal people through research, extension and advocacy. Centre works in partnership with rural and farming communities for sustainable agricultural and rural development. The activities are designed in such a way that promotes a pro-nature, pro-poor, pro-woman and a pro-livelihood orientation to technology development and dissemination.
