Strategy for the future: CGIAR calls for feedback on its roadmap

CGIAR has released its draft Strategy and Results Framework 2016–2025 (SRF) for feedback, with the consultation open until 27 February.

The draft SRF outlines the strategies, priorities and vision that will drive the agenda for the 15 CGIAR research centers, including CIFOR. Included in the draft are the real-world impacts the program should aim toward over the next decade, and ways to measure progress.

Once finalized, the SRF will guide the future of CGIAR’s global research program, which aims to reduce poverty and hunger. Central to this mission is improving the natural resource systems and ecosystems that underpin food security and environmental health.

Leading scientists, funders and partner organizations, in collaboration with food producers and farmers in developing countries, contributed their knowledge and perspectives to the draft SRF.

For the current phase of consultation, CGIAR is asking “How well does the CGIAR Strategy and Results Framework now reflect a good roadmap for effective agricultural research for development?”

Stakeholder feedback on the draft will be used to strengthen the SRF before the final version is presented to the Consortium Board in March.
