A renewed focus on innovation and establishing new partnerships was high on the agenda at the recent joint meeting of the Research Management Committee (RMC) and the Independent Advisory Committee (IAC) of the CGIAR Research Program on Grain Legumes and Drylands Cereals (CRP-GLDC) which took place at ICRISAT in Hyderabad, India, 17-19 October 2018.

Dr. Peter Carberry, Director General (Acting) and the Director of CRP-GLDC, pointed out the opportunities through GLDC to improve the capacity of systems to innovate and develop knowledge for breeding and trait discovery programs. He briefed the IAC-RMC members on the progress made by the program since its launch in February this year.

IAC Chair Dr. Ian Barker said that the GLDC portfolio has an important basket of crops to help vulnerable communities, emphasizing the importance of strengthening partnerships with various stakeholders to achieve GLDC strategic objectives.

At the meeting, the leaders of GLDC’s five Flagship Programs and cross cutting initiatives, including gender and youth, and capacity development, provided a detailed overview of various activities that are currently underway in 13 priority countries in Africa and held discussions to identify their research priorities and the portfolio of activities for the next year.
