CGIAR Centers reiterate commitment to a sustainable partnership with Cameroonian Government
After several decades in Cameroon, and despite their significant contribution to agricultural research and development in Cameroon, the CGIAR Centers and their achievements are still not well known in the country. The centers organized an open day in Yaoundé on 19 January to amplify CGIAR and its partners’ actions to transform food systems in Cameroon and beyond while enhancing environmental health and biodiversity, despite the ongoing climate crisis.
The event’s focus was to strengthen synergies with the various partners and pave the way for strong collaboration in the future. The centers represented comprised the Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT (ABC); Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and International Center for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF); International Potato Center (CIP); and IITA.
