The TRIPS meeting in North Africa and West Asia held in Tunisia outlined the organization for leadership and execution of the Dryland Systems CRP and highlighted the budgetary breakdown from 2013 to 2015. Budgeting and partnership principles were also discussed during the presentation.
The organizational structure consists of the CG system Consortium Board to oversee work via a performance contract under which ICARDA will take the role of the lead center responsible for governance, fiduciary oversight and financial management. A steering committee comprised of independent science advisors will provide strategic oversight, and be responsible for direction, monitoring and resource allocation. A research management committee will be responsible for overall coordination and management of the research agenda in each of the 5 target dryland regions. This regional level work will be done in partnership with CG centers, ARIs and NARS partners. Regional Stakeholder Advisory Committees are also being established to facilitate and oversee the work of the regional coordinators.
