GCARD1 (2010) resulted in the “Road Map for Change”, a global strategy paving the way for more responsive and relevant agricultural research. GCARD2 (2012) focused on the partnerships, foresight and capacity development needed to deliver change, and resulted in the reform of the CGIAR. 

Through national and regional consultation, GCARD3 (2015/16) aims to re-align research priorities with countries’ own development needs and national processes (and with the Sustainable Development Goals).  The GCARD3 Global Event, 5-8 April 2016 in Johannesburg South Africa, hosted in partnership with the Agriculture Research Council of South Africa, is a milestone in that process.
