Developed countries

GCP links basic science with applied research through a broad network of plant scientists from diverse backgrounds, working at CGIAR Centres, in academia and other research institutes, and in regional and country research programmes. In essence, our work is all about partnerships and networking, bringing together players in crop research that may otherwise never have worked together.

A typical GCP project brings together partners from CGIAR, developing countries and developed countries. These partnerships have worked well, and borne good fruit.

Below are by-year listings of some of the developed-country partners we have worked with.

  • 2012–2013
  • 2011
  • 2010
  • 2004–2009

Please see partner listings in our Annual Reports.
