This document summarizes the financial requirements of the 2007 research programs and theirfinancing as proposed by the Centers and Challenge Programs. Following the approval of the CGIAR Priorities at the AGM05, the guidelines in the submission of the 2007-2009 MTP was revised to accommodate the transition towards the implementation of the new 20 CGIAR Priorities (Annex
3). The description of the research program – beginning at the project level- is no longer in terms of “Output” categories; instead, the Centers now associate the approved CGIAR Priorities to the Projects.
This document is organized into four sections as follows:
1. Section I summarizes the aggregate proposal in terms of the investment level and how it is projected to be financed.
2. Section II outlines the financial decision-making steps being followed in the 2007 program review and approval process.
3. Section III discusses the highlights of the investment and financing proposals.
4. 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 covering the 2007-2009 period.
This report was discussed during the Business Meeting at AGM06.
