CGIAR’s new Executive Managing Director discusses opportunities to support Sri Lanka’s development priorities with Prime Minister
Ismahane Elouafi visited the country to learn more about IWMI’s work and ways to leverage integrated capabilities for water, food and climate resilience.
During a courtesy meeting with Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena in Colombo on February 2, 2024, the Executive Managing Director of CGIAR, Ismahane Elouafi, expressed her gratitude for the continued support provided by Sri Lanka as a Host Country of a CGIAR Center. Sri Lanka is home to one of 15 CGIAR Centers, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), which is the only international organization with global headquarters in the country. CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food-secure future dedicated to transforming food, land, and water systems in a climate crisis – and Elouafi took office as its Executive Managing Director in December 2023.
