A National Consultation was held in Ethiopia on 11th December 2015 as part of the third Global Conference on Agricultural Research and Development (GCARD3) and to support the CGIAR Site Integration initiative. The event brought together more than 60 representatives from CG Centers operating in Ethiopia and their national partners to define priority research agendas relevant to Ethiopia and framework for collaboration and engagement strategy.
