CIP Director General Wells Reflects on CIP’s 45th Anniversary
Monday, 2016/10/17 | 07:56:26

CIP, September 23, 2016 By admin

 

To help us put our 45th anniversary into context, we spoke with CIP’s Director General Barbara Wells about gender in agriculture and science, the World Food Prize and CIP’s future.

 

Q. You’re the fourth person to head the organization. What changes have you observed in the discussion about food security since you began in 2014?

 

CIP had already been a well-respected and accomplished research for development organization when I joined. In the years since, the two biggest things that have happened were the UN’s adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. 

 

CIP’s work is consistent with 11 of the 17 SDGs; of those 11, our work is perfectly aligned with the Goals around Ending Poverty, Eliminating Hunger, Gender Equality, Climate Action, and Life on Land, all of which have been deeply embedded in all six of our programs.  Cross-cutting to everything we do is gender equity and climate resilient responsiveness to climate change.  

 

We have also made significant progress toward achieving impact at scale on the ground across the continents where we work. In the past year, CIP has seen advancements on many fronts. One result that particularly stands out is having reached more than two million households with orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP), contributing to the elimination of childhood blindness and contributing to the reduction in stunting.
