Governance

CGIAR System Council

The CGIAR System Council is the strategic decision-making body of the CGIAR System that keeps under review the strategy, mission, impact and continued relevancy of the System as a whole.

CGIAR System Management Board

The CGIAR System Management Board is an integral part of the CGIAR System, comprised of 9 Voting members, 1 Ex-Officio Non-Voting member and 5 Active observers, and is responsible for providing strategic direction and effective governance and leadership of the CGIAR System Organization.

Executive Management Team

From 1 September 2020, CGIAR will be led by an Executive Management Team (EMT), comprising three Managing Directors.

The EMT will work with leaders across the CGIAR System, forging new linkages and partnerships, in pursuit of an innovative, vital, and coherent agenda, and playing the key role of ensuring unified and coordinated leadership, decision-making and oversight of One CGIAR research to deliver, with partners, measurable success.

General Assembly of the Centers

The General Assembly of Centers is a forum for CGIAR Research Centers to discuss issues relevant to Centers, including those related to the CGIAR System and CGIAR System Organization, it is therefore an important linking mechanism for the CGIAR System as a whole.
