Founded in 2003, the Global Cassava Partnership for the 21st Century (GCP21) is a not-for-profit international alliance of 45 organizations and coordinated by Claude Fauquet and Joe Tohme of the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT). It aims to fill gaps in cassava research and development in order to unlock the potential of cassava for improving food security and also increasing incomes of poor farmers through work to develop industrial products from cassava.
“ Cassava is
    the Soul
   of GCP21 “

GCP21 is providing updated information regarding the cassava crop in the world, the scientists working on cassava, statistics about cassava production and transformation, cassava conferences and workshops with all PPT and PDF presentations and posters, and cassava R&D projects in the world.

• Because Parana was never populated mechanization of production and transformation occurred since the beginning of the “state colonization” in the 1950s.
• In short Cassava in Parana is a model for Africa!
