Dryland Systems Annual Performance Report 2016
MetadataShow full item record
In 2016, the CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Dryland Systems (hereinafter referred as Dryland Systems or DS) was instructed to close down (along with the other systems CRPs on Humid Tropics and Aquatic Systems) while at the same time ensuring essential activities would be continued under one or more Phase II CRPs. A total budget of $2 million was thus allocated to the CRP necessitating a revision of the original POWB2016. To this effect, the CRP produced a close out plan against a background of a lack of a systemwide process for closing CRP’s. Thus, DS was unique in producing such a close out plan. The Program Management Unit’s (PMU) response to the close down of the DS was to organize a series of three ‘legacy’ papers that would stand to serve dryland and other ecosystem research in relation to major global challenges.
