We are pleased to send you the September issue of the GFAR Update!
GFAR is an open and inclusive movement for change, open to all who share in our common purpose of advocating for, and catalyzing Collective Actions to strengthen and transform agri-food research and innovation systems, so that they are more effective in sustainable development. From your involvement and interest in innovation in agriculture, food and rural development, we know that you share these aims!
Is your organization a Partner in GFAR yet?
Those who share in the Forum’s purpose are kindly asked to now identify themselves as such by registering themselves as the partner institutions that make up this unique forum. GFAR is a wholly voluntary movement and partnership in GFAR carries no legal commitment or financial obligation.

Be represented in the new governance of the Global Forum!
The 2016 Partners’ Assembly of the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) has decided to create a new Steering Committee for GFAR, one that is representative of all sectors, and which truly reflects the diversity of stakeholders in agricultural research and innovation around the world. To do so, the Partners in GFAR will shortly be asked to identify who, from among the Partners in GFAR from each sector, they wish to have represent their perspectives and interests in the new Steering Committee, the body that sets and drives the agenda for GFAR each year.
If you wish to be nominated, or to nominate another organization, to represent your interests and concerns, it is necessary for your organization to first be registered as a Partner in GFAR. We will soon be providing Partners with further information on the processes required for identifying their representation in the new Steering Committee.
We look forward to your participation and involvement in this unique global forum. Register today at http://www.gfar.net/about-us/be-a-partner
GFAR Update is a briefing service from the GFAR Secretariat. Our aim is to keep you regularly informed and aware of new initiatives and collective actions of the Partners in GFAR around the world, so that these can have greater reach and impact for those we serve - in particular small farmers and producers.
