Campaign Partner Resource Hub

Welcome to the CGIAR Campaign Partner Resource Hub. This page will list all of the resources you will need to help promote CGIAR.

Why is CGIAR campaigning?

Climate change is fueling a global hunger crisis. Levels of hunger and malnutrition stand at record highs. Without urgent action to build resilience to climate change, many more lives and livelihoods will be lost.

Agriculture and food systems – the way we transport, process, trade, store and consume food – must be part of the solution to climate change. The world simply cannot meet the climate and development goals without transforming food systems.

CGIAR is the world’s largest publicly-funded agricultural research network, with 10,000 staff working in over 80 countries with +3,000 partners. For over 50 years, CGIAR has been at the forefront of agricultural research and innovation, uniquely positioning it to tackle the interconnected challenges of climate change and food insecurity:

  • CGIAR’s work on modern crop varieties has reduced infant mortality by a third across the developing world – averting between 3 and 6 million infant deaths each year;
  • Almost half the world’s wheatland is sown with varieties that come from research by CGIAR scientists. 

Today, CGIAR is equipping smallholder farmers around the world with the know-how and innovations they need to produce more and better food with fewer resources, protect natural resources and biodiversity, and adapt to changing and challenging environments.

More investment needed

The Ceres 2030 report identifies the need to double investment in agricultural R&D to help end hunger, double smallholder farmer incomes, and protect natural resources and the environment.

In this context, CGIAR is launching an Investment Case at COP28 as the start of a campaign to raise $4 bn for the next CGIAR research portfolio. The $4bn investment will harness the power of science and innovation to tackle climate change, increase productivity and build more resilient food systems.

For every $1 invested in agricultural research and development, investors see $10 worth of benefits to smallholder farmers, vulnerable communities and ecosystems.

The world needs CGIAR science today more than ever. With science, food systems can transform from being a source of emissions to a sink for carbon, from fueling environmental degradation to supporting regeneration, and from reducing biodiversity to protecting it.

The global community must seize this moment and support critical research and innovation now. Join us in investing in CGIAR research and innovation.
