GFAR plays a critical role in transforming agri-food research and innovation systems. To effectively fulfil its role as a catalyst for change GFAR needs strong and robust governance and management.
The governance and leadership of GFAR is strengthened through the voices of the GFAR Steering Committee — the body is made up of representatives elected from each of GFAR’s constituencies.
The Partners that make up the Steering Committee are not there just to represent themselves. They have committed to advocate for the concerns of their constituencies and actively engage with and mobilize them. They are directly accountable to other GFAR Partners in their sectors for catalyzing key Collective Actions to be taken forward with Partners in other sectors.
Dr. Ravinder (Ravi) Khetarpal was elected GFAR Chair in 2021. Dr. Ross McLeod joins him as Vice-Chair. Read more here.
