Theme leader empowerment discussed in GRiSP meeting

Key members of the Global Rice Science Partnership (GRiSP) are meeting this week (25 February-1 March 2013) at IRRI Headquarters to further define the roles of the theme leaders and empower them towards these.

The GRiSP global theme leaders and focal persons came from AfricaRice, CIAT, Cirad, IRD, JIRCAS, and IRRI.

The group also aims to develop during the meeting a joint understanding of and specific directions on three major cross-cutting themes that are crucial to the success of GRiSP and to the CGIAR reform process:
  • Mainstreaming gender in activities and product development,
  • Partnerships for impact at scale, and 
  • Impact-pathways with clear outcomes, intermediate development outcomes, measurable output and outcome indicators, target indicators/outcomes, and an outline for an operational monitoring and evaluation system.
