As a CGIAR research center, much of CIP’s research is conducted through CGIAR Research Programs. Funding for those programs, and for bilateral projects, comes from public and private organizations, governments and foundations across the globe. The Center also receives generous in-kind support from national partners and international collaborators.

CIP gratefully acknowledges the countries, organizations, partners and individuals that supported its agricultural research for development in 2019. CIP also thanks all the funders that globally support its work through their contributions to the CGIAR system. Without their intellectual and financial support, CIP could not have made the contributions to better lives reported here.

Total revenue and expenses reported by CIP in 2019 were USD 63.5 and USD 65 million respectively, reflecting a deficit of USD 1.5 million.

Impact:
A combination of sweetpotato planting material, agronomic training and nutrition education has helped millions of rural families improve their food and nutrition security. (Credit CIP/I. Corthier)

Next-generation breeding:
Research assistant Monica Santayana works on a project to crossbreed potato and its wild relatives (Crop Trust/M. Major).

Stopping sweetpotato pathogens:
Scientist Barack Wanjawa tests the LAMP assay for sweetpotato viruses in Kenya (KALRO/A. Mulwa).

Triple advantage:
By storing sweetpotatoes in dry sand and using them to produce planting material, farmers are able to plant and harvest the nutritious crop earlier (CIP/M. Cherinet).

Potatoes for prosperity:
Farmer Doris Kagendo Gikunda, of Meru county, with the high-yielding CIP potato variety Unica (CIP/V. Atakos).

Sweet resilience:
Thousands of farmers received sweetpotato planting material to replace crops destroyed by Cyclone Idai (CIP/I. Corthier).

Asian appetites:
Nutrition education in Bangladesh (CIP/S.Quinn)
