CGIAR announces record funding haul

The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research has announced a record boost in funding focussing on food security and climate change in developing nations.

The global consortium will have US$1 billion to spend in 2014, twice as much as in 2008, it announced on 17 December.

The money “will help finance CGIAR’s 16 global research programs and accelerate the development of scientific, policy and technological advances needed to overcome complex challenges—such as climate change, water scarcity, land degradation, and chronic malnutrition, greatly improving the well-being of millions of poor families across the developing world,” said Frank Rijsberman, chief executive officer of the CGIAR consortium, in a statement.
