The CGIAR Consortium of International Agricultural Research Centers was established in April 2010 to coordinate and support the work of the 15 international agricultural research centers supported by the CGIAR.[1] It plays a central role in formulating the CGIAR Strategy and Results Framework (SRF)[2] that guides the work of the CGIAR supported centers on CGIAR funded research and developing the CGIAR Research Programs under the SRF. The work of the CGIAR Consortium is governed by the Consortium Board, a 10-member panel that has fiduciary responsibility for the CGIAR Research Programs, including monitoring and evaluation and reporting progress to donors.[3] The CGIAR Research Programs are approved and funded by the CGIAR Fund[4] on a contractual basis through performance agreements.[5]
