CGMap and Ongoing Research: Putting CGIAR Research on the Map

  1. 1. Two sides to the same coin people, themes and regions. It answers the question: Who is doing what, where and with whom? Complementary Maps Presently, CGMap Ongoing Research provides a map of CGMap and Ongoing Research provide two research carried out in Africa, the result of a collaborative complementary views of CGIAR research information, effort involving the CGIAR’s Regional Plan for Collective but with a different focus. While CGMap’s medium-term Action in Eastern and Southern Africa, the ICT-KM Program, research plans provide the official umbrellas under which CGIAR Centers and hundreds of scientists who have projects in the field are going to be implemented, Ongoing contributed their research information. Research contains information about the research projects through which these plans are being implemented. CGMap CGIAR scientists who have chosen to contribute are united focuses on Center and Program research plans over three- by a strong desire to increase the impact of agricultural year terms, and Ongoing Research focuses on who is doing research. Contributors can demonstrate collective action what now, where and with whom. and rich collaboration networks, and provide contacts to the key players in the region and links to related information. Heads, you win! Thanks to these contributors, CGMap Ongoing Research CGMap consolidates research plan data from across the offers unique information about the current work of CGIAR CGIAR and makes it available via an easy-to-use interface. scientists. The system provides a ‘map’ that allows users to navigate through the research plans that the CGIAR Centers and Scalability Challenge Programs publish in their Medium Term Plans CGMap Ongoing Research is based on a scalable (MTPs). management system that can be adapted to cover other regions and themes. Our vision is to simplify access to core CGMap can help answer questions about the rationale research information by supporting networks of scientists in of research, planned deliverables in a certain year, making their information available, visible and findable online. budgeted funds, target regions and more.
