Update on the CGIAR Research Response to COVID-19


by A4NH | January 11, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a global health crisis and massive disruptions to economies and livelihoods. As the global leader in agricultural
research, CGIAR immediately took action to analyze and counter the pandemic’s potentially devastating impact on food security and nutrition worldwide, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, first through the existing research programs, and then with the establishment of a COVID-19 Hub in July to develop additional research and coordinate system-wide efforts.

Through the Hub and across the system, CGIAR is working with partners to develop solutions for COVID-19 response, recovery and resilience. This report, published in December 2020, details that research response to date.
