    The overall goal of the research carried out by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and its partners continues to be to improve the livelihood of low-income people in developing countries through reduced poverty, food insecurity, malnutrition, gender inequality, and child mortality, to help cope with HIV/AIDS, and to foster better institutions, policies, and sustainable management of natural resources of particular importance to agriculture and poor people. The goal is fully compatible with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the CGIAR aims to make the greatest possible contribution not only to their achievement but also to the achievement of similar goals beyond 2015. This aim is reflected in the effort to set priorities for CGIAR research to 2015 reported here.

    Summary Report on System Priorities for CGIAR Research 2005-2015 2005

    The priority-setting process consisted of a multi-pronged approach that was both analytical and broadly consultative with stakeholders - including nongovernmental organizations, donors, and scientists both within the CGIAR System and in other research institutions including NARS and advanced research centers. Building on an assessment of emerging trends and the consultative stage of the priority-setting process, the SC reviewed the total research portfolio of the CGIAR projected to 2015 and soug ht to focus the CGIAR research agenda on a smaller number of priority areas for research.

    The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2005
    Eradicating world hunger – key to achieving the Millennium Development Goals
    2005
    Only ten years now remain before the 2015 deadline by which world leaders have pledged to reduce hunger and extreme poverty by half and to make substantial gains in education, health, social equity, environmental sustainability and international solidarity. The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2005examines progress towards the World Food Summit goals and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), focusing on the critical importance of reducing hunger, not only as the explicit target of MDG 1 but as an essential condition for reaching the other MDGs. The report presents compelling evidence that hunger and malnutrition are major causes of the deprivation and suffering targeted by all of the other MDGs. Progress towards those targets has lagged, particularly in the countries and regions where efforts to reduce hunger have stalled. The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2005emphasizes that most, if not all, of the MDG targets can still be reached. But only if efforts are redoubled an d refocused. And only by recognizing and acting on two key points: without rapid progress in reducing hunger, achieving all of the other MDGs will be difficult, if not impossible; and the fight to eliminate hunger and reach the other MDGs will be won or lost in the rural areas where the vast majority of the world's hungry people live.
