CGIAR’s Partnership Forum, an innovation introduced into CGIAR’s operating environment in July 2016, brings together the diverse group of stakeholders that actively support the CGIAR System to express their views on CGIAR operations – our Funders, Centers, and advisory services – and most importantly, national agricultural research and extension systems, universities and advanced research institutes, policy bodies, global and regional fora, intergovernmental organizations, non-government organizations, private sector companies, farmers/producers and consumers.

Convened by the CGIAR System Organization and co-chaired by a representative of the Centers and the Funders, at least once every three years, a key area of focus of the Partnership Forum is to consider ongoing trends, signals and risks in local, regional and global contexts in science and in the field of agricultural research for development.
