The CGIAR System Office and IWMI India are delighted to invite you to a half-day consultation, being organized as part of the CGIAR Initiative on National Policies & Strategies. Building policy coherence is one of the focus areas of NPS and the initiative aims to facilitate and catalyse coherence, not only among national policies but also within the CGIAR. Home to 16 CGIAR initiatives, such coherence is doubly important in India.
The objective of this cross-initiative consultation is to promote greater understanding and appreciation among CGIAR initiatives working in India. Besides fostering exchange of ideas, the event will also identify synergies and opportunities for the initiatives to work together.
In preparation for the event, the NPS India team will compile information from each of the initiatives to understand the initiatives’ focus on impact areas, research themes, geographies, partnerships and policy engagement. This information will be presented during the event. Each initiative will then be invited to share some unique and critical aspects of their work in India followed by discussion in three break-out groups – each focusing on one area of opportunity for synergistic action.
Individuals attending this event may be audio taped, videotaped, or photographed during the course of a meeting, and by attending grant permission for their likenesses and the content of their comments, if any, to be broadcast, webcast, published, or otherwise reported or recorded.
