The ever-growing online photo library features over 1,300 images of CIAT’s work to find eco-efficient solutions to hunger in the tropics. Creative Commons licensing enables users to download and publish the pictures free-of-charge – on the condition that publication is accompanied by a CIAT photo credit.

The CIAT photostream was established as a part of a trial of online social media tools in May 2009. Traffic to the site has risen sharply in recent months.

Recent users include: the Associated Press news agency, the BBC, The Guardian newspaper, Scientific American magazine, the United Nations University, the UN’s Media Global news agency, World Resources Institute’s NextBillion blog, Coffee & Cocoa International magazine, the Crop Science journal, as well as various CGIAR centers – for news and features pages, websites, posters, presentations and conference materials.

You can visit CIAT’s Flickr Photostream to browse the latest uploads.

    Congratulations. This is great and such a useful resource. I would love to see as a next step some photo how-to do guides or storys with more descriptive text so that the wonderful photos can be used beyond illustrational purposes. What do you think?
