Synchronization and extension of the current CGIAR Research Program (CRP) portfolio and development of a new CGIAR Strategy and Results Framework (SRF) have been prioritized in 2014. In early November 2014 the FC approved the extension of the current 15 CRPs to the end of 20161 . The new draft SRF will be discussed at a workshop in Berne on 14-16 January 2015 and the CB and FC are expected to approve it in March/April 2015. Substantive strategic direction for the CRPs is provided in the SRF which describes the System Level Outcomes (SLOs) that CGIAR aims to achieve, and presents the results framework. Each CRP proposal will address and describe a coherent research program associated with at least one System Level Outcome, while also describing how it will consider unintended consequences on the other 2 SLOs. This call builds on the foundation of the SRF by providing practical guidance for the CRP 2nd Call that the CB and FC will authorize shortly after the approval of the SRF. Guidance elements included encompass background material, proposal development processes, and templates. Additionally, the communities of practice coordinated by the Consortium Office have been encouraged to assist in providing guidance and coordination on issues that have arisen. They have contributed to a number of sections in this call, and are expected to contribute further during its finalization.
