🤝 Developing a new paradigm for partnerships: Together for stronger #foodsystems.⁠

Marco Ferroni, Chair of the CGIAR System Board has penned a new blog on the importance of partnerships for CGIAR's continued impact. Check it out below and at the link in our bio ↕️⁠


In Africa, it’s said that if you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together. ⁠

The world indeed has far to go to deliver safe and healthy food, livelihoods and environments for all, a complex undertaking made yet more difficult by climate change, the conflict in Ukraine and the COVID-19 recovery. The combined impact has left healthy diets out of reach for three billion people, according to the latest report from the fao.⁠

No single entity can go the distance to tackle these challenges alone. This recognition inspired, in part, the #OneCGIAR reform, a process that has also highlighted the fundamental need for more systemic collaboration and engagement both within CGIAR and with external partners. ⁠

Interconnected and interdependent challenges require fresh, and bold new approaches. CGIAR has already shown how research teams working across previously siloed disciplines can more effectively tackle complex issues. But transformation of food, land and water systems will require that we explore greater diversity in the range of research and scaling partners, going beyond the agriculture sector into the health and energy sectors for example.⁠
