10-11 June 2021. 13th CGIAR System Council Meeting.
The 13th meeting of the CGIAR System Council was held virtually. The Agenda and documents related to the meeting can be found here.
Implementing the recommendations endorsed by the System Council entails profound change across CGIAR, addressing culture, values, people, policies, and systems.
- One CGIAR is a dynamic reformulation of CGIAR’s partnerships, knowledge and physical assets – building on an energized, interconnected, and diverse global talent pool. It aims to drive major progress in key areas where innovation is needed to deliver on the SDGs by 2030, anchored in more unified governance, institutions, country engagement, and funding.
- Delivering CGIAR’s mission requires an integrated approach to research and partnerships – which the climate crisis makes even more imperative and urgent. CGIAR’s governance and institutions need to be united as ‘One CGIAR’ in order to tackle the complex and interrelated challenges of the 21st century.
- The recommendations reflect an unprecedented, System-wide process of co-creation – between Funders, clients and Centers over the past year to position and equip CGIAR for the future.
