The Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development
The first Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD1) 2010 was held in Montpellier, France from 28-31 March 2010. GCARD was organized by GFAR in collaboration with the Consortium and Independent Science and Partnership Council of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and Agropolis International. The Conference replaced the GFAR Triennial Conferences and the Annual General Meetings of the CGIAR.
The second Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD2) took place from 29 October to 1 November 2012 in Punta del Este, Uruguay. GCARD2, organized by GFAR in partnership with the CGIAR the Government of Uruguay, set out to move the process forward from WHAT transformation of agricultural research for development (AR4D) is required, to HOW to implement the GCARD RoadMap in practice and the difference it makes. This message of Change was strong and persistent throughout the Conference and explicitly focused on better meeting the needs of smallholder farmers.
