Annual Report 2021 | Social media toolkit
The International Potato Center (CIP) harnesses the power of science to improve the food and nutrition security, incomes and resilience of farming families and vulnerable communities. The CIP Annual Report 2021: From lab to field to scale, features examples of how CIP scientists develop and deploy innovations and some of the impacts of the Center’s interventions on three continents in 2021. It is a testament of the organization’s value and a reflection of the contributions of each and every member of the CIP team. We invite you to share the report and its stories with your partners, funders, stakeholders and other contacts.
This social media toolkit serves as a guide to help you drive online conversations about #CIPAR21 on your social media channels.

@Cipotato’s 2021 annual report provides snapshots of our efforts to address global 🌍 challenges, from developing & testing innovations in the lab and field to working with partners to take solutions to scale.
@Cipotato is tapping the power of science in the lab 🔬 and the field 🌱 to develop scalable innovations for #foodsecurity, #nutrition, livelihoods and #climate #resilience.
The @Cipotato 2021 Annual Report has examples of how scientists are tackling global challenges, developing innovations in the lab 🔬 and the field 🌱 and working with partners to take solutions to scale.
Farmers in the High Andes grow a rainbow native #potato 🥔 varieties.
The @Cipotato genebank safeguards and shares that #biodiversity with them, strengthening their culture, diet diversity and #resilience.
#DYK Peru has more than 3,000 native #potato 🥔 varieties?
Conserved by local farmers and the @Cipotato genebank, that #biodiversity has been is used to breed varieties for the world 🌏.
#DYK pests destroy 40% of crops globally 🌏?
The risk of destruction is rising with #ClimateChange, but thankfully, @Cipotato scientists developed a program to predict where & when pest risk is growing, to help farmers prepare.
#ClimateChange is increasing the risk of pests that already destroy USD 70 billion worth of crops per year.
That’s why @Cipotato developed a program to predict the risk of a pest and help farmers prepare for and manage it.
Increasing farmer access to quality potato and sweetpotato seed has great potential to improve food production, incomes and nutrition security in Africa, where @Cipotato facilitates seed 🌱 production.
Planting quality seed is vital for good #potato 🥔 & #sweetpotato🍠 yields.
Efforts to promote commercial production 🌱 in #Kenya have increased smallholders’ #foodsecurity, nutrition and incomes.
Aeroponics is one of several technologies @Cipotato has promoted in Georgia to increase the supply of quality seed 🌱 potatoes, essential for higher #potato 🥔 production and incomes.
By catalyzing quality seed potato production in Georgia, @Cipotato is planting the seed of higher potato 🥔 production and farmer incomes.
@Cipotato’s gender-responsive approach to nutrition education and agricultural 🌱 extension is empowering Bangladeshi women to diversify family diets and incomes.
More than 50,000 farmers in #Bangladesh are rising to the challenges of #ClimateChange thanks to high-yielding, #climatesmart sweetpotato 🍠 and potato 🥔 varieties.
Innovations 💡 are key to transforming #FoodSystems, and @RTB_CGIAR produced 77 over a decade, including 13 “golden eggs” that @CGIAR and other organizations have adopted.
@RTB_CGIAR enabled millions of farming households to improve their #foodsecurity, nutrition and incomes.
RTB also developed 13 innovations 💡 with potential to enhance #FoodSystems transformation.
As poverty, hunger, malnutrition and climate change threaten people across the globe 🌍, @Cipotato is tapping the power of science to produce sustainable solutions.
The Center’s 2021 annual report has examples of how CIP works with partners to develop innovations in the lab and field and take the most promising ones to scale.
The @Cipotato genebank conserves more than 4,800 unique potato accessions and has shared more than 1,500 to them with potato-farming communities in the Peruvian Andes to replace varieties they’d lost.
A study in 65 of those communities documents the benefits of this reintroduction of native potato biodiversity.
Hungry bugs! Insects consume or damage 40% of crop production globally 🌏, and the risk of that destruction is rising with climate change.
@Cipotato scientists developed a program to predict where in when pest risk is greatest, now and in the future, and it’s being used to help farmers prepare for and control that threat.
Quality seed 🌱 is essential for good harvests, which is why the @Cipotato and partners have promoted production of quality seed.
The results are improving the harvests and incomes of smallholder farmers in Kenya and other African countries.
Georgians love potatoes 🥔!
@Cipotato and national partners have thus strengthened the commercial seed potato sector in an effort to help more farmers access quality seed 🌱 and use good agricultural practices – the keys to higher production and incomes.
In the process, women and young people are playing a bigger role in Georgia’s potato sector.
Thanks to @Cipotato, a growing number of Bangladeshi farmers are growing climate-smart and nutritious potato 🥔 and sweetpotato 🍠 varieties that can increase their families’ resilience, food production, income and nutrition security.
@RTBCGIAR developed and shared 77 innovations with 350 government organizations, universities, NGOs, businesses farmers and others across the globe 🌍.
They identified 13 approaches, tools and frameworks and dubbed them “golden eggs.”
Find out how they are being used by researchers in CGIAR and other organizations to enhance research for development and interventions.
