Partner in GFAR, CGIAR will launch the following special report: Open for business – Pathways to strengthen CGIAR’s responsible private sector engagement on 12 April.

CGIAR maintains that that through collaboration with the private sector there are more opportunities to scale up and implement innovative solutions to contribute significantly towards achieving SDG2 (Zero Hunger). CGIAR 2030 Research and Innovation Strategy recognizes private sector partnership as an essential component of food systems transformation. The Netherlands acknowledges the value of co-creation within research, which is driven and facilitated through the Dutch Diamond approach, as a means of collaboration between government, private sector, knowledge institutes and civil society organizations. To this end, the Dutch government aims to support CGIAR in strengthening its new strategy.

A Special Report on Partnerships with the private sector has been jointly written by experts from the Netherlands and CGIAR. The Special Report, due to be published ahead of the event, will provide actionable recommendations and be the basis of the discussions of the event. The focus will be on:

  • optimising private sector engagement
  • managing risks and challenges
  • key principles mechanisms for managing private sector engagement
  • institutional actions needed to make private sector engagement work

During the event CGIAR and the Netherlands will sign a new Memorandum of Understanding. Participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the Strategic Partnership that will shape the collaboration for the coming years.
