The strategy is designed to ensure that publicly-funded international agricultural research helps most effectively to double the productivity of maize-based farming systems, making them more resilient and sustainable and significantly increasing farmers’ income and livelihood opportunities, without using more land and as climates change and fertilizer, water, and labor costs rise. The strategy will support and greatly strengthen the efforts of national governments, the private sector, international, regional and local organizations, and farming communities, creating or capitalizing on synergies and building on the different skills, knowledge, and resources of the community that designed the strategy. This research proposal (3.2) was discussed and approved at the 4th Fund Council meeting in April 2011.
