Help shape an emerging proposal for a livestock and fish Mega Program: An invitation from ILRI, WorldFish, CIAT and ICARDA

CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish

As you may be aware, the CGIAR is currently undergoing a major change process – the largest in its 39 year history. The new model that has been developed emphasizes clear lines of accountability and stronger collaboration and partnership with other research and development actors. This more businesslike structure and its clarified roles, responsibilities and decision-making processes promise to enable the CGIAR to do more in fulfilment of its mandate – in short, to be more impact-oriented.

For a quick overview of the change process see the short video ‘Rising to the challenge of a new CGIAR’.

The new CGIAR approach is being operationalized through a number of Mega Programs, each of which is currently being developed by several Centers working closely together. The shortlist of topics for the initial set of Mega Programs was drawn up by the board of the new Consortium of CGIAR Centers.
