CGIAR country consultations: improving collaboration in agricultural research to support national agricultural development objectives. CGIAR organised in the past two months national consultations in Nigeria, Tanzania, and Ethiopia.
Some concerns that should be addressed were raised, including the lack of visibility of some of the CGIAR work, insufficient commitment to country priorities, and unclear boundaries among CGIAR centers, between CGIAR and national organizations, and between research and development.
