Managing Partners

Managing Partners play a key role in Phase II implementation. They will include representatives from five CGIAR Centers (Bioversity International, CIAT, IFPRI, IITA, and ILRI) as well as two new external partners: Wageningen University and Research Centre (Wageningen UR) and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). They will be represented on the Planning and Management Committee, will recruit and co-manage Flagship and cluster leaders and researchers, and will actively support CRP-level resource mobilization, communication, and advocacy.
