Dear colleagues and members of the CGIAR community, 

We write to advise you that, in consultation with our co-host, KALRO, we have taken the decision to postpone CGIAR Science Week. This is due to unforeseen circumstances. This is not a decision taken lightly. We deeply regret any inconvenience caused to delegates and to colleagues who were still intending to join. Thank you for your patience while we consulted and decided on this matter.

Please do not make plans to go to the UN campus. The badge collection has now closed and site visits and exhibition set-ups have also been canceled.

Looking ahead, we can confirm that the rescheduled event will take place at the same venue – the UN Campus – in Nairobi, co-hosted by KALRO. We are working quickly to confirm a new date and will advise on this as soon as possible. More information will be available on the website soon. We are committed to making this important event for agrifoods science and innovation a great success, with your continued and valued support.

The CGIAR team and our service provider TAG Events is standing by to respond to any questions you have. (Agency hotline +254 721 466 009).

CGIAR Science Week: innovation and partnerships for a food, nutrition, and climate secure-future

When humanity has faced its greatest challenges, science and innovation have provided solutions. Today, major and connected global challenges threaten the sustainability of food, land, and water systems, with the most vulnerable people and communities at greatest risk.

Recognizing the urgency of these challenges, CGIAR and the Kenyan Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) are convening the world’s leading scientists and decision-makers at the intersection of agriculture, climate, and health for an inaugural CGIAR Science Week. The gathering will inspire action and investment in sustainable food systems that nourish both people and the planet. With the new CGIAR research Portfolio being shaped to address the biggest challenges and opportunities of our time, this will be a key moment to shape and co-create the research and innovation agenda and to establish critical partnerships.

Drawing on CGIAR science and partnerships from around the world, the inaugural CGIAR Science Week brings together the community working for a food, nutrition, and climate secure future to:

  • Hear from global leaders in research, policy, and development about how we can harness and scale science and innovation during our Plenary sessions.
  • Co-create and contribute to the design of new CGIAR 2025-2030 programs during our Stakeholder Consultations.
  • Discover the best of our science during an exciting program of Science Talks, Innovation Showcase, and Research Workshops.
  • Experience game-changing innovations that are improving the lives of producers and consumers around the world in our Exhibition Area.
  • Explore CGIAR and partner labs and research stations and see science in action during our field visits.
