On March 17, 2023, the heads of the six GFAiR Regional Fora (AARINENA, APAARI, CACAARI, EFARD, FARA, and FORAGRO) signed a Declaration to establish a Global NARS Consortium (GNC) and entrusted it to GFAiR (see Bangkok Declaration).

After a series of consultations, the CGIAR Science Week in Nairobi, Kenya provides a great opportunity to meet with NARS, sub-regional organizations and Regional Fora, among other other actors. 

The NARS workshop is the next step in the journey towards establishing the GNC. It will involve representatives from NARS from various countries, and representatives from sub-regional and regional Fora and will provide room for all to engage and shape the GNC by sharing their experience and expectations. 

This session is a unique opportunity to gather, join forces and improve the future of agricultural research and innovation at a global level.
