Guidelines for mapping Bilateral/W3 Projects
Enrico Bonaiuti, Richard Thomas. (31/12/2015). Guidelines for mapping Bilateral/W3 Projects.
This document is prepared for the partners in the CGIARResearch Program (CRP) on Dryland Systems (DS) in order to create a common understanding on the process of mapping Window 3 (W3) and bilateral projects onto the CRP and the implications of such decisions, to achieve clarity on the contribution of project-based activities and their scientific aspects brought by Partner Centers (PC) to the DS program and to improve communication and transparency of results other than the budget allocation. This guideline is developed in absence of any document prepared by the Consortium Office (CO) and may be adapted once a common CRPs approach is finalized. DS have 8 PCs (International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA, the Lead Center LC)); International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT); Bioversity International; International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT); International Potato Center (CIP); World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF); International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI); International Water Management Institute (IWMI); and Sub-Saharan Africa Challenge Program (SSA CP)) who need to agree on this approach. Hence this is a first attempt to achieve a better investment of Window 1 (W1) and Window 2 (W2) funds and clear communication
