Impact of CGIAR’s Agricultural Research for Development: Findings and Lessons from the SIAC Program

This report characterizes and synthesizes the findings from 25 impact assessments funded under SPIA’s Strengthening Impact Assessment in CGIAR (SIAC) program between 2013 and 2017 (See Table 2 for full list). The studies examine the impacts of a wide range of inno-vations from three core areas of CGIAR research—crop improvement, production systems management, and policy. Studies used a range of methods, from RCTs to qualitative ap-proaches, depending on the specific research question being addressed.
