The CGIAR Research Program on Wheat 2020 Annual Report
The year 2020, which this report highlights, will be remembered first and foremost for the tragic and destructive global COVID-19 pandemic. This crisis not only destroyed lives and economies but exposed the enormous vulnerability of our food system. More than ever, we realize the urgent need for actionable science-based solutions for food systems that deliver affordable, sufficient, and healthy diets produced within planetary boundaries. The dedication and resilience of the scientists, field and lab workers and supportive community of the CGIAR Research Program on Wheat (WHEAT) has allowed us to make important advances toward that vision.
