GCARD3 (2015-2016) is the third Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development. Organized by the the Global Forum and CGIAR, it is part of a continuing, iterative reform process, and builds on what has gone before in, and around, the previous two GCARDs.

GCARD3 is a two-year consultation process focusing on stakeholder and partner priorities and based on national and regional stakeholder consultations designed to help shape the strategy and future direction of international agriculture research and innovation. It includes dialogue to foster the development of an integrated investment facility for agricultural innovation, to ensure that national systems can be empowered through direct investment and the required capacities, to provide effective uptake pathways able to make use of the products of agricultural research. GCARD3 is an inclusive, participatory process and an opportunity to shape the future. It encourages conversations for change in setting a new agenda for agricultural research for development and new pathways for uptake. The overall outcome will be the clear – and transparent – identification of international research priorities, and what’s needed to achieve future development goals, in particular for family farmers and poor communities.
