Generation Challenge Programme Medium-Term Plan: 2008–2010
Name:Generation Challenge Programme Medium-Term Plan: 2008–2010

Launched in 2003 as a 10-year initiative, the Generation Challenge Programme (GCP, or simply Generation) is now entering its fourth year and consequently submitting its fourth Medium-Term Plan (MTP). In the past three years, GCP has made remarkable progress in intensive research and strategic planning. A key highlight in 2006 was the development of a strategy framework, a set of guiding principles for GCP’s strategic decisions. This strategy framework is complemented by ‘reference studies’ that provide data on GCP’s impact targets (farming systems and crops). This refinement of our research strategy sharpened our focus and informed the selection of commissioned projects to be initiated in 2008, in particular for Subprogrammes (SPs) 3 and 5. However, Generation remains dedicated to the exploration and characterisation (genotyping and phenotyping) of diversity in staple crops, and will continue to support this core effort.
