CGIAR - A Strategic Alliance

The global cgiar

The Global CGIAR


To achieve sustainable food security and reduce poverty in developing countries through scientific research and research-related activities in the fields of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, policy, and environment.


Vision for the cgiar

Agile, world-class knowledge alliance

Working at frontier of science, linking science and the poor

Provider of public goods that will not be addressed by private sector research

Partnerships as key element

Mobilizer of resources (finance, knowledge, intellectual property)

Vision for the CGIAR

A key criterion for selecting activities supported by the cgiar

Generation of international public goods (IPG)—knowledge, technology, policy, services- Not national public goods- Not delivery systems- CGIAR works with others who generate national public goods or are involved in delivery

A Key Criterion for Selecting Activities Supported by the CGIAR

A record of achievements

For every dollar invested in CGIAR since 1971, $9 worth of additional food has been produced.

More than 75,000 developing country scientists and researchers have been trained by CGIAR Centers.

Without CGIAR research, world food production would have been four to five percent lower, and over 13 million more children would be malnourished.
