National Consultations for GCARD3
National-level consultations will take place through 2015 and 2016 in a set of countries identified through agreed criteria by CGIAR Research Programs, with input from other stakeholder groups. CGIAR, with their national partners, are taking the lead in organizing these consultations.
It is important to understand the needs, priorities, activities and possibilities at a National level for the planning and implementation of future activities that work towards the goals relevant for those geographies and in appropriate partnerships.
The proposed countries for National Consultations in 2015 to be held in are:
Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Tanzania, Vietnam
Other countries for National Consultations in 2016 include:
Ghana, Mozambique, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, India, Nepal, Cameroon, Kenya, Uganda, DRC, Malawi, Niger, Mali and Zambia
These face-to-face events will provide an opportunity for a variety of stakeholders in those specific geographies to interact with key national stakeholders to understand each others’ priorities and activities, to strengthen existing partnerships as well as finding new partners and partnership modalities. They will also show how the CGIAR Research Programs work together and deliver development outcomes, jointly, and with their partners.
