Water systems science in One CGIAR
“CGIAR’s new ambitions are defined by new impact areas, with water at the heart of each…”
One CGIAR will focus on innovations from genetics to entire food production systems, and on policies and strategies to transform trajectories for sustainable development. And critically, innovations that can be deployed faster, at a larger scale, and with greater impact, where they are needed the most. CGIAR and its partners will deliver ways to grow, catch, trade, and consume healthy and nutritious food. But also the means to manage landscapes and water systems that are inclusive, more equal and resilient. Ultimately a unified CGIAR will help the world to live within planetary boundaries, stop the loss of biodiversity and maintain a safe climate. CGIAR’s new ambitions are defined by a set of impact areas, with water – and therefore water systems science – at the heart of each.
