The board takes a keen interest in the continuous improvement of Center scientific and corporate processes, its ability to respond to new and existing threats and to take advantage of emerging opportunities for partnerships and collaborations.
To enhance the Center’s effectiveness, transparency and accountability, management is strengthening project management, with a focus on monitoring, evaluation, learning, and improving internal communications.
CIMMYT also played a significant role in the CGIAR’s 2016 transformation, with donors uniting to ensure that food and nutrition security can be realized through research with impact.
As we enter the next 50 years in CIMMYT’s history, I take this opportunity to thank our worldwide donors, collaborators, fellow board members, management committee, scientists and staff for their commitment and dedication to CIMMYT’s mission.
Nicole L. Birrell, Chair, Board of Trustees
