Opportunities and Challenges for CGIAR in a Changing World
The Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC) recently convened its 17th meeting at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) headquarters in Rome (19-20 April). The main focus of this meeting was to explore perspectives across CGIAR and beyond on global changes in the context of agricultural research for development – in effect, horizon scanning.
In this video, ISPC members reflect on the increasingly complex set of challenges that the developing world is facing for its food, nutrition and environmental sustainability, and some of the implications of this shifting context for CGIAR.
