Objectives of GCARD

To help ensure that:

  • Agricultural research outputs are accessible and relevant to the poor in developing countries;
  • Research is aligned with and driven by the development needs of the resource-poor;
  • Knowledge generation through scientific research is embedded in development thinking and practice;
  • Funding systems are better aligned between research and development;
  • Constructive and effective innovation pathways are developed between diverse stakeholders for the more rapid uptake of new knowledge, tools and technologies;
  • International agricultural research systems are more effectively integrated with regional and national partners (public, private and civil) and are responsive and accountable for development impact against national and sub-regional demands.

This GCARD process aims to promote effective and targeted investment at all levels of the agricultural system, to ensure that today’s agricultural research will meet the needs of the resource-poor end user. The GCARD process helps to refine regional and global agricultural research priorities, as identified by different stakeholder groups and representatives in each region in an inclusive way.
