The Gratitude project works in four countries of Africa and Asia: Ghana, Nigeria, Thailand and Vietnam. Cassava and yams are important food security crops in much of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia because their presence in the cropping system increases the resilience of farmers in the face of climate change, drought, and fluctuations in the price of durable commodities.

Including both African and Asian partners in the consortium adds to the comprehensiveness of the project approach in that it enables the project to take a more holistic view of post-harvest losses within the context of global food security.
