On 5 Nov, 2013, a CGIAR Knowledge Day was held at ILRI in Nairobi, Kenya. Karen Brooks from IFPRI/PIM set the scene for the gender discussions.  See the presentation at: http://www.slideshare.net/CGIAR/kday-gender

On 5 November 2013, 125 CGIAR board members, directors general, scientists, donors and other stakeholders gathered to participate in a CGIAR ‘Knowledge Day’ convened by the CGIAR Fund Office, Consortium Office and CGIAR Consortium. The Knowledge Day was hosted and organized by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), and held at ILRI’s headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. It was the first such event; feedback suggests it was useful and worth repeating. 

 

The thinking and discussions at this Knowledge Day are being used to refine the ‘value for money’ proposition of CGIAR Research Programs—their economy, efficiency and  effectiveness (equity is sometimes added)—particularly regarding what is needed to create research-for-development ‘impact pathways.’ The Knowledge Day also looked at how the research programs can meet larger development goals: advancing rural development by sustainably improving agriculture, reducing poverty and bettering health and nutrition in the developing world.
