Policy seminar: German development cooperation and CGIAR joining hands for sustainable food systems transformation
BY BIRTHE PAUL
For decades, Germany has been a reliable partner of international agricultural research to support sustainable agrifood systems transformation. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) recently launched its new strategy Sustainable Agri-Food Systems: A World Without Hunger. International agricultural research is seen as an integral source of innovation in the three action areas rural development, food security and agriculture. CGIAR, under its One CGIAR unified research framework, has combined agricultural research and innovations into a new portfolio of initiatives, informing a growing number of policies and impacting more livelihoods than ever before.
