16 May 2022, Morocco: This week sees major advances for agricultural research-for-development (R4D) in Morocco with the launch of the partner-led CGIAR Climber and F2R-CWANA Initiatives, and the inauguration of the new ICARDA Morocco genebank.

The Climber and F2R-CWANA Initiatives are two of CGIAR’s new global portfolio of 33 initiatives developed by CGIAR and its partners, to deliver more relevant, consistent, and efficient outcomes, through the strengthened collaboration of our global research centers to improve knowledge and asset sharing, and reduce institutional boundaries.

Both initiatives are the result of months of teamwork by CGIAR’s global science experts, working in close consultation with our research partners and experts, committed donors, and above all, our in-country partners to ensure that all outcomes are market and demand driven.
