CGIAR Research Programs are defined as major research efforts, which reach across CGIAR centers and their partners to make a major difference in achieving global development goals. They align the research of the 15 CGIAR Research Centers and their partners into efficient, coherent, multidisciplinary programs.
The point of the Research Programs is to bring together the research synergies, strengths, and resources from multiple centers to increase efficiencies and enhance impacts.
