Description:

The mission of the Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research (CGIAR) is to contribute to food security and poverty eradication in developing countries through research, partnerships, capacity building, and policy support, promoting sustainable agricultural development based on the environmentally sound management of natural resources. Created in 1971, CGIAR is an association of public and private members supporting a system of 16 Future Harvest Centers that work in more than 100 countries to mobilize cutting-edge science to reduce hunger and poverty, improve human nutrition and health, and protect the environment. The CGIAR focuses on five major research thrusts: increasing productivity, protecting the environment, saving biodiversity, improving policies and strengthening national research. The World Bank is one of four co-sponsors of the CGIAR, the other three being Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
