The study identifies factors that affect how effectively the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) aligns its research to support country programs of the World Bank and other Members of the Group. Its point of departure is a set of 12 factors widely agreed to be major strengths of CGIAR, which were first articulated in 1986 by Warren C. Baum, a former CGIAR chair. Using case studies in several countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, the study presents a number of lessons tied to Baum’s dozen factors and grouped by alignment domain.
