Our Partners

CGIAR Centers In Partnership

In partnership with the International Crops for Research Institute for Semi-Arid Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) will lead the implementation of AVISA. The three CGIAR centers will work closely with partners—county governments, NGOs, CBOs, private sector actors and other BMGF-funded projects/programs, as well as leverage knowledge and best practices from academic institutions and foundations. 

This BMGF initiative is supported by the institutional leadership of ICRISAT, IITA and CIAT and will leverage internal investments by these Centers through their own modernization agendas. Further investment backing will ensue through the CGIAR Research Program on Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals (GLDC) which shares the AVISA modernization imperative. 

In addition to organizations recognized for specific projects and outputs, we thank all donors which globally supported the work of ICRISAT and its partners through their contributions to the CGIAR system.
