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.
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.
This brief highlights the insights and recommendations from a joint A4NH/ISPC workshop on nutrition held in September 2014. The two-day workshop was organized as a follow-up to the 2013 Science Forum on “Nutrition and Health Outcomes: Targets for agricultural research” and was attended by over 40 participants.
This Impact Brief is based on the study that documents the impacts of improved common bean varieties on field-level yields, costs of production, and household farm incomes among smallholders in Rwanda and Uganda. Effects are also examined so that the number of people escaping poverty due to the diffusion of improved varieties can be calculated.
