RECOGNIZING 50 YEARS OF IMPACT THROUGH SCIENCE AND INNOVATION
For 50 years, CGIAR and partners have delivered critical science and innovation to feed the world and end inequality. Our original mission – to solve hunger – is expanding to address wider 21st century challenges, with the aim of transforming the world’s food, land, and water systems in a climate crisis.
In our experience, transformation comes through innovation. As we mark our 50th anniversary in 2021, we look back on half a century of innovations – new ideas, products, services, and solutions driven by science – that have made a difference for some of the world’s biggest development challenges.
It’s our 50th anniversary – sign up to receive updates on our year-long program of news, releases, and events.
