Five concrete areas of collaboration have been recommended in a meeting of CGIAR centres and national partners and key stakeholders in a move to better align CGIAR activities with the national Growth and Transformation Plan II (GTP 2015-2020). The meeting was scheduled following a decision by the Consortium of CGIAR centres to strengthen the alignment of CGIAR research with the priorities of national governments.
Improved coordination and collaboration of the second generation CGIAR research programs (CRPs), it was argued, will largely take place at country level where research outcomes are more likely to be achieved at scale when they are closely linked to national agricultural and related nutrition and health development priorities and initiatives.
Once the meeting report is finalized and reviewed, a country working group will move this agenda forward.
