Strategic partners

CCAFS has built a comprehensive and relevant range of strategic partnerships for key functions (research, capacity building, knowledge management, action on practices, policy and institutional change, and management and governance).

CCAFS partners have been selected during Phase I and the Extension Phase through iterative processes of stakeholder analysis, workshops at global, regional and national levels, and pilot work together. The most effective of these partnerships carry forward into Phase II.
