Developing a New Paradigm for Partnerships: Together for Stronger Food Systems
Thursday, 2022/07/21 | 08:08:29

CGIAR July 15 2022

 

In Africa, it’s said that if you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.  

 

By Marco Ferroni, Chair of the CGIAR System Board.

 

The world indeed has far to go to deliver safe and healthy food, livelihoods and environments for all, a complex undertaking made yet more difficult by climate change, the conflict in Ukraine and the COVID-19 recovery. The combined impact has left healthy diets out of reach for three billion people, according to the latest report from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). 

 

No single entity can go the distance to tackle these challenges alone. This recognition inspired, in part, the One CGIAR reform, a process that has also highlighted the fundamental need for more systemic collaboration and engagement both within CGIAR and with external partners. 

 

Interconnected and interdependent challenges require fresh, and bold new approaches. CGIAR has already shown how research teams working across previously siloed disciplines can more effectively tackle complex issues. But transformation of food, land and water systems will require that we explore greater diversity in the range of research and scaling partners, going beyond the agriculture sector into the health and energy sectors for example.

 

In the past, CGIAR’s global network of more than 3,000 partners has facilitated the exchange of research, science and innovation to tackle many of the most pressing issues facing food systems in all corners of the world.

 

For example, collaboration between the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines and AfricaRice in Côte d’Ivoire, together with National Agricultural Research and Extension Systems (NARES) partners, developed and deployed new rice varieties to withstand extreme conditions affecting an increasing number of countries from Nepal to Nigeria.

 

Despite vastly different social, economic and ecological contexts, countries across Southeast and South Asia and Africa are facing similar challenges of droughts, floods and salinization caused by rising sea levels. Co-developing scientific breakthroughs and climate-smart solutions through regional and cross-border partnerships is the most efficient way to address common threats.
