The International Pulse Trade and Industries Confederation, CICILS, has set aside $1.1 million in a CICILS account to fund activities that will form contributions to the United Nations International Year of Pulses 2016. The Year will be a key opportunity to promote the benefits of pulses to food security; health & nutrition; rural livelihoods and environmental sustainability.

In addition to this funding, CICILS is working to raise further funds and in-kind contributions to make the year a success, for example through the FAO trust fund by member states. Activities are already underway with national promotional groups worldwide, from China, to the UK, to Brazil and North America. The UN, the pulse sector, scientists, civil society and others are encouraged to give support for progressive goals for the year and innovative partnerships to implement them.
