At the end of September 2016, the CGIAR System Council approved a new portfolio of 11 CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs) and three research Platforms, effective January 2017.
This ISPC commented study examines two distinct partnership domains: Multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) in Agricultural Research for Development and Global MSPs approaches. It develops a framework of Partnership and Innovation Modes to assist the CGIAR in embedding its work within the wider architecture of partnership, platforms, and networks that will be required to tackle global scale
This document contains the finalized study on “Agricultural Growth Corridors: mapping potential research gaps on impact, implementation and institutions” together with the ISPC commentary. The study aims to inform policy-makers and researchers about how development corridors might bring about changes in patterns of agriculture and consequently influence research needs.
ISPC Assessment of Revised CRP-II Full proposals, 14 September 2016
ISPC Assessment of the Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS) CRP-II revised proposal (2017-2022)
This brief note describes the initial steps taken by the ISPC between June and September 2015 towards developing a framework for qualitatively assessing relative priorities across the 45 unique sub-IDOs. It describes the results of two parallel efforts undertaken aimed at eliciting priorities from two distinct groups of CGIAR stakeholders.
The ISPC reviewed 13 CRP pre-proposals and nine EoIs for four Cross-Cutting Platforms between 17 August and 28 September, (also drawing on reviews by external experts and referring to reviews of Phase 1 and Extension proposals). This document provides the ISPC assessment at the portfolio level.
