The Independent Science for Development Council (ISDC) commends CGIAR on its draft 2030 Research and Innovation Strategy during a time of a major organizational reform and a global pandemic, particularly given the very diverse stakeholder groups and some of their strongly held views. This is an extremely important task undertaken under difficult conditions. We sincerely appreciate the creativity, energy, and consultative efforts involved in crafting this draft.
In the interests of constructive criticism of such an important document, ISDC offers the following consensus, based on our individual reading and comments and dialogue among the full Council.
At the time of making this feedback publicly available in August, the One CGIAR Draft Research Strategy was not yet publicly available.
