CRP-GLDC Updates its Theory of Change
The CGIAR Research Program on Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals, ‘CRP-GLDC’ is a complex undertaking. Scientists in seven CGIAR centers (ICRISAT, IITA, ICARDA, ICRAF, ILRI and the Alliance of Bioversity International and the CIAT) and three non-CGIAR centers (CIRAD, IRD and CSIRO) along with the private sector, civil society and National Research Institutes strive to improve the production, productivity and marketability of 10 under-researched legumes and cereals that are critical for world food security and nutrition. They focus on 17 countries in the dryland regions of South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Central and Latin America. In these regions, solutions to poverty, malnutrition and environmental degradation are most needed. To account for changes that have occurred in CRP-GLDC over the past three years, it was imperative to update its Theory of Change to truly reflect the delivery pathways of its impact.
