Financial results for 2015

In 2015, the total CCAFS budget was USD 66.064 million composed of: CGIAR Window 1 and 2 (W1&2) 2015 funds of USD 33.720 million as per final revised Financing Plan; USD 32,101 of Bilateral & Window 3 (W3) sources from all CGIAR Participating Centers; and by a CGIAR W1&2 carry-over of USD 0.472 million (later cut by USD 0.230 million). Total execution was USD 58.3 million (88.2%). Gender and social Inclusion research activities were USD 7.134 million, approximately 12.2% of the total annual execution. Total W1&2 2015 funds were paid in two tranches, 35% (USD 11.873 million) in July and 65% (USD 21.847 million) by end of November. 28% of these funds were W2 (USD 9.405 million) and 72% W1 (USD 24.315 million). The W1&2 budget cuts – 32% in relation to initial POWB – made implementation difficult, posing the only real challenge to CCAFS in 2015.

Table 1 shows the budget and expenditures by natural classification and Table 2 by Unit, differentiating Participating Centers from Core Team Units such as Flagship Leaders, Regional Program Leaders and Coordinating Unit.

Financial outlook

Given the decrease of W1W2 budget for CCAFS in 2015 and 2016 compared to previous years, there has been a setback in the funding of several CCAFS projects for the end of Phase I.

The estimated total budget of year 2016 is USD 47,349 million, 50% from W1W2 funds and 50% from W3 & Bilateral grants.
