PART-II-separador-research-publications-webIn the sidelines of their meeting in Mexico earlier this month, the CGIAR Fund Council members visited our Host Centre, CIMMYT, on 9th May. The programme for the day included a GCP session at which the GCP Director, Jean-Marcel Ribaut, presented findings of the recent GCP Final External Review, and how some of GCP’s experience in the areas of research, partnerships, governance and management could inform the CGIAR Research Programmes (CRPs).

Attending the GCP session were Fund Council members from Australia, CGIAR Fund Office, European Union, Nigeria and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). 

Discussions centred on future prospects for GCP’s Integrated Breeding Platform IBP); IBP in relation to CRPs; and the role of partneships in research.
