This ISPC commented study examines two distinct partnership domains: Multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) in Agricultural Research for Development and Global MSPs approaches. It develops a framework of Partnership and Innovation Modes to assist the CGIAR in embedding its work within the wider archi­tecture of partnership, platforms, and networks that will be required to tackle global scale challenges.

This document contains the finalized study on “Agricultural Growth Corridors: mapping potential research gaps on impact, implementation and institutions” together with the ISPC commentary. The study aims to inform policy-makers and researchers about how development corridors might bring about changes in patterns of agriculture and consequently influence research needs.

The fourteenth meeting of the ISPC was held from the 14-16 September 2016 at ICRISAT Headquarters, Patancheru, India.

The aim of this policy is to ensure that any potential Conflicts of Interest are made open and transparent, and that processes are managed to take declared interests into account. No policy can account for every eventuality; it is the responsibility of all individuals working with the ISPC to declare any unforeseen associations which could be perceived as a conflict.

An ISPC workshop on “Corridors, Clusters, and Spatial Development Initiatives in African Agriculture” was held on 30 November 2015 as a side event of the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture in Africa in close collaboration with NEPAD-CAADP and the European Centre for Development Policy Management. The workshop report also contains the list of participants.

The twelfth ISPC meeting was attended by 54 participants from the 15th to 16th September 2015. The report annexes contain the list of participants as well as the final agenda for the meeting.
