Funding & Strategic Partners

Achievements by CIFOR and its partners described in this annual report were made possible thanks to the financial support of the CGIAR Fund, as well as through programmatic grants from funding partners, some of which are also CGIAR Fund donors.

We are grateful to all who support our efforts to deliver on our mission. We also extend our thanks to our strategic partners, who not only partner with us on research but also enable funding support through their relationships with CIFOR.

CGIAR Consortium and Fund

The CGIAR Consortium is an international organization that, together with the CGIAR Fund, advances international agricultural research for a food- secure future by integrating and coordinating the efforts of those who fund research and those who do the research. The CGIAR Fund is a multi-donor trust fund that finances CGIAR research across 15 research centers. The CGIAR Fund is administered by the World Bank and governed by the Fund Council, a representative body of the Fund’s 36 government agencies and private foundation donors and other stakeholders. We would like to thank all funding partners who supported our research through their contributions to the CGIAR Fund.
