CGIAR Fund

CGIAR Fund Donors

To maximize funding coordination and harmonization, reduce transaction costs, and avoid funding and research fragmentation, donors to CGIAR are encouraged to channel their resources through its multi-donor trust fund. The CGIAR Fund finances research carried out by a consortium of 15 international agriculture research centers working closely with hundreds of partners worldwide through CGIAR Research Programs. To receive resources from the Fund, programs must set out their expected achievements and provide verifiable targets against which progress can be measured and monitored. Linking funding to results gives donors better value for money and ensures that research leads to tangible benefits for the poor. As explained below, Fund Donors may designate their contributions to one or more of three funding windows. 

CGIAR greatly appreciates the contributions from all of its donors, and would like to thank our valued investors for their support, without which none of our work would be possible.
