ISPC Assessment of Revised CRP-II Full proposals, 14 September 2016
ISPC Assessment of the Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS) CRP-II revised proposal (2017-2022)
This brief note describes the initial steps taken by the ISPC between June and September 2015 towards developing a framework for qualitatively assessing relative priorities across the 45 unique sub-IDOs. It describes the results of two parallel efforts undertaken aimed at eliciting priorities from two distinct groups of CGIAR stakeholders.
The ISPC reviewed 13 CRP pre-proposals and nine EoIs for four Cross-Cutting Platforms between 17 August and 28 September, (also drawing on reviews by external experts and referring to reviews of Phase 1 and Extension proposals). This document provides the ISPC assessment at the portfolio level.
This brief highlights the insights and recommendations from a joint A4NH/ISPC workshop on nutrition held in September 2014. The two-day workshop was organized as a follow-up to the 2013 Science Forum on “Nutrition and Health Outcomes: Targets for agricultural research” and was attended by over 40 participants.
