The theory of change depends on all work being done within partnerships, particularly with
national research and extension systems(NARES) and with small and medium enterprises (SMEs)
active in the national breeding and seed sectors. A core focus is to raise the NARES-CGIAR-SME
breeding networks’ collective strategic and operational capacity to deliver a high rate of uptake
and replacement in seed varieties among small-scale farmers in low- and medium- income
Co-generated genetic innovations will be delivered as part of integrated solutions across CGIAR.
Together with System Transformation and Resilient Agrifood Systems Action Areas for food, land
and water systems, and through close cooperation with CGIAR’s strategic partners, Genetic
Innovation will enable progress on nationally defined pathways for development. Major effort
will go into achieving affordable, accessible and fair benefits to low-income farmers, with
particular emphasis on ensuring that research outcomes lead to greater equality for women.
Genetic Innovation will contribute across all five of CGIAR’s Impact Areas, through maintenance
of agrobiodiversity and through accelerated adoption by farmers of demand-driven improved
crop varieties, delivered as part of integrated bundles of institutional and technical innovations
that are designed to respond to priorities in partner countries.
