Update on the CGIAR research response to COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a global health crisis and massive disruptions to economies and livelihoods. As the global leader in agricultural research, CGIAR immediately took action to analyse and counter the pandemic’s potentially devastating impact on food security and nutrition worldwide, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, first through the existing research programs and then with the establishment of a COVID-19 Hub in July 2020 to develop additional research and coordinate system-wide efforts.
Through the hub and across the system, CGIAR is working with partners to develop solutions for COVID-19 response, recovery and resilience. A new report, published in December 2020, details that research response to date.
