Due to unforeseen circumstances, FCM events at the CGIAR Science Week have been postponed. We deeply regret any inconvenience to those who were intending to join. If you were intending to join in person, please do not make plans to go to the UN campus. The badge collection has now closed, and site visits and exhibition set-ups have also been canceled.

For those who are still interested in attending in-person or online but may not have been able to attend even before the postponement, please find the event details below. We are working quickly to confirm a new date and will advise on this as soon as possible. More information will be available on the website soon.

At CGIAR Science Week, the Fragility, Conflict, and Migration (FCM) Initiative invites you to register for our events online or in-person.

  • Food Frontiers & Security: People – especially women – in settings with fragility, conflict, migration, and rapid urbanization are the most vulnerable to crises and need solutions. We advance food system science to address fragility, conflict, rapid urbanization, and demographic shifts amid climate change. We focus on science-based solutions for resilient food systems in fragile and conflict-affected areas through preparedness, recovery, and understanding of migration; resilient urban and peri-urban food systems, particularly for the urban poor; and rapidly identifying and deploying innovations to strengthen food systems against shocks.
  • Science Talk: CGIAR’s Crises Response, Science and Innovations to Support Lives and Livelihoods in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Communities and Regions: The event will showcase successful partnerships, innovative approaches, and scientific evidence produced by CGIAR researchers to address the complex challenges posed by fragility, conflict, and displacement. The session aims to highlight important and impactful partnerships with WFP, UNHCR, and other partners to inspire and facilitate knowledge-sharing on effective strategies for promoting resilience and achieving sustainable development in fragile and conflict-affected settings. Through interactive discussions and presentations, participants will explore how these partnerships have contributed to addressing the root causes of fragility and conflict and fostering long-term stability and prosperity in conflict-affected regions. Ultimately, the event seeks to catalyze new partnerships and initiatives that can drive positive change and transformative impact in fragile contexts around the world.
