Africans to get greater say in CGIAR projects

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Donors said at an evaluation meeting in France last month that projects get too much direction from the 15 centres affiliated to the CGIAR consortium of international agricultural research centres. Only a few of the centres are based in developing countries, and even in these centres researchers often aren’t local, but outsiders from developed countries.

The donors, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the European Union, fund the CGIAR’s yearly US$980 million budget. They want developing country scientists, particularly in Africa where half the budget is spent, to have a greater say in the design and management of projects.

Donors at the Montpellier meeting from 17 to 28 June said that involving agricultural research institutions and farmers in the countries where the CGIAR projects are being implemented will ensure that research outputs are relevant and taken up by end-users.

Luis Solórzano, the CGIAR consortium’s chief of staff, says African scientists will be co-leading projects to a greater extent in the future.

“Many donors are pushing for African ownership. Donors are willing to fund projects with a clear local partner who has been part of conceiving the project and not just used as a sub-grantee who collects data,” he says.

African agricultural research organisations will also become more involved in the design of CGIAR research projects, Solórzano says. CGIAR has already started talking to organisations such as the West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development about projects that will be relevant in those regions.

The move will see CGIAR scientists no longer being evaluated on the basis of the number of publications they produce each year, but on whether their projects involve partners in developing countries. They will also be evaluated on the number of people using their research outputs.

Solórzano says while some centres have begun involving African partners, change has not been easy for others. “Going to look for partners, maintaining and cultivating relationships requires a cultural change,” he says.

The CGIAR is also looking to develop a programme for building capacity to conduct agricultural research and source and manage donor funding in Africa. CGIAR will be organising a meeting in October in Kenya to develop a capacity building strategy.

“We have postdoctoral students at CGIAR centres, but they are part of small projects. Capacity building is not part of our system-wide strategy, but African countries say they want it,” Solórzano says.
