Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD): New tools for analyzing the impact of climate change / De nouveaux outils pour analyser l’impact du changement climatique

The Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD) 2010 took place in Montpellier, France from 28-31 March 2010. It aim was to provide a global action plan and strategy for improving agricultural research in order to make maximum impact on development, especially of the poor.
This plan and strategy is developed on the basis of a global framework of agricultural research needs and priorities, which would be established through consultations with representatives from a wide range of agricultural research stakeholders around the world. The Conference was expected to usher in change that would reshape agricultural research and innovation and improve resources for research.

GCARD is being organised by the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) in collaboration with the Consortium and Independent Science and Partnership Council (now being formed) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). The Conference replaces both the GFAR Triennial Conferences and the Annual General Meetings of the CGIAR.
