The ISPC is facilitating System-wide agreement on the nature and assessment of Quality of Research for Development (QoR4D). A small working group (WG) on QoR4D with representation from Centers, CRPs and the IEA was established late last year. This WG organized a workshop at FAO on 06-07 February 2017 with representation from across CGIAR System constituencies - key findings from those discussions are elaborated in a brief. A consultation document then went out to the workshop participants so that the ‘‘constituency” leaders could consult with their respective constituencies and provide feedback.
The fifteenth meeting of the ISPC was held from 04-05 April 2017 in Rome, Italy.
