CRP 3.1 is designed to ensure that publicly funded international agricultural research helps most effectively to dramatically boost farm-level wheat productivity, while renewing and fortifying the crop's resistance to globally important diseases and pests, enhancing its adaptation to warmer climates, and reducing its water, fertilizer, labor and fuel requirements. The strategy aims to enable, 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. This proposal was presented at the 4th Fund Council meeting in April 2011, then approved with conditions at the 5th Fund Council meeting in July 2011. This revised version dated August 30, 2011 was approved by the Fund Council in mid October 2011.
