The seven partners, led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) bring to the table a diverse portfolio of expertise and focus which, when put together, form a strong foundation from which the program will grow. One of the hallmarks of the partnership’s strength is the fact that it not only comprises a broad representational swath of the CGIAR, but also brings in two external organizations to broaden the perspective and deepen the knowledge base.

The organizations have representatives on the A4NH Planning and Management Committee, work to recruit and co-manage Flagship and cluster leaders and researchers, and support resource mobilization, communication, and advocacy for the entire Research Program.
