This document summarizes the financial requirements of the 2006 research programs and their financing as proposed by the Centers and Challenge Programs. As the CGIAR Priorities exercise being developed by the Science Council is still ongoing, the 2006-8 MTP’s continue to describe the work
program in terms of CGIAR outputs. It is expected that once the new priorities are approved by the CGIAR, the Science Council will provide guidance on translating outputs into the new priorities.
This document is organized into four sections as follows:
Section I summarizes the aggregate proposal in terms of the investment level and how it is projected to be financed.
Section II outlines the financial decision-making cycle followed in the 2005 program review and approval.
Section III discusses the highlights of the investment and financing proposals.
Section IV discusses the investment proposals from various dimensions.
In addition, there is an attachment to this document which summarizes the financial and program highlights, as well as project cost tables, of each of the fifteen Centers and four Challenge Programs.
This document was discussed at the Business Meeting at AGM2005.
