The Crop Crisis Control Project (C3P) is a regional response to the catastrophic spread of Cassava Mosaic Virus Disease (CMD) and Banana Xanthomonas Wilt (BXW) in Eastern and Central Africa.

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) join a network of regional associations and agricultural institutes, country-level agricultural research organizations, and local implementing partners in proposing the Crop Crisis Control Project (C3P), an 18-month initiative to intensify, and bring coordination to, the fight against Cassava Mosaic Virus Disease (CMD) and Banana Xanthomonas Wilt (BXW) in six countries of Central and East Africa – Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The CRS and IITA project team, led by an experienced Chief of Party, includes veteran agronomists, a social scientist, cassava and banana breeders, a socio-economist, a plant pathologist, a virologist, and a GIS specialist. Backed by the experience of their organizations and partners, the C3P consortium is positioned to tap into the most extensive expertise available.
