The CGIAR Research Portfolio 2017-2022 is structured around two linked clusters of challenge-led research. The first of these is the innovation in Agri-Food Systems which involves adopting an integrated, agricultural systems approach to advancing productivity, sustainability, nutrition and resilience outcomes at scale.
