Breeding Resources Initiative’s 2023 Progress Report can be found here.

Dear readers,

As we step into 2024, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the remarkable strides achieved by Breeding Resources Initiative (BRI) in 2023. The year has been pivotal in advancing our mission to provide CGIAR-NARES networks with first-class breeding services, practices, and technologies.

One of our standout successes has been our meticulous process management work and its crucial role in supporting our day-to-day operations. Other noteworthy developments include the decision to adopt the Canvas Business Model, a breeding data management and informatics strategy serving the whole organization, and advancements in the analytical pipeline. The Crops to End Hunger projects continue, and we proudly launched our Service Request Portal, as a one stop center for all global shared services and support provided by Breeding Resources Services (BRS).

In this end-of-year progress report, we encapsulate key achievements and unveil the roadmap for the coming year. 2024 is intended to be the year of integration for Breeding Resources Initiative—a time when all services seamlessly integrate into a business-model framework and within breeding programs.

We will focus on developing and promoting Breeding Resources shared services, and amplifying our delivery efforts to underscore the benefits Centers and partners can derive from the Initiative and Breeding Resources Services.

But before we plunge into this transformative year, let’s celebrate our accomplishments in 2023, laying the foundation for the new year but also for the upcoming 2025-2027 portfolio.

We extend our sincere gratitude for your collaboration and hard work throughout 2023. Your insights and efforts are crucial to our shared success. Please feel free to reach out with any comments or suggestions.

Wishing you a prosperous and collaborative year ahead!

Sharifah Syed Alwee
