The CGIAR Consortium has taken a multiyear approach to provide Consortium Research Programs (CRPs) with funding stability. Thus before the end of 2013 all CRPs were given indicative W1 & W2 budgets for 2014 and 2015. This has improved and facilitated the planning process for CRPs, especially for CCAFS, which involves all 15 CGIAR Centers and multiple other partner universities. From 2016 onwards, budgets will be allocated by the Consortium based on CRP performance.
The estimated 2014 total budget is USD 74 million, which includes USD 28 million of bilateral grants.
