Contribution to Sustainable Development Goals

Across the CGIAR System, we aim to reduce poverty, improve food and nutrition security, and improve natural resources and ecosystem services. These three goals – what we call our System-level Outcomes – have been designed to align with and contribute to reaching the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

In 2019, CGIAR Research Programs and Platforms reported 97 confirmed cases of progress toward our internal targets, bringing us closer to reaching the global goal of a more sustainable world.
