ICRISAT cited anew
() - August 17, 2008 - 12:00am

The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) has been rated “Outstanding” based on the performance-linked measurements of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), for the second year in a row.

The ‘outstanding’ rating recognizes ICRISAT’s good science, great impacts, institutional health and financial health. It places ICRISAT’s performance on top of the 15 international agricultural research institutes that are members of the CGIAR.

ICRISAT director general William D. Dar said the second consecutive ‘outstanding’ rating is a manifestation that ICRISAT is in tune with the changing institutional context and task environment in pursuing its mission of helping bring about pro-poor growth and sustainable development in the semi-arid tropics of Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Dr. Dar dedicated this success to the poor farmers and poor people in the dry tropics of the world. “Our commitment to delivering results that are profound and superior led to this reward,” he said.

The CGIAR Performance Measurement (PM) system is a regular annual feature in the CGIAR monitoring and evaluation system. Performance is measured along three dimensions - results, potential to perform and stakeholder perceptions. The PM system provides Centers with a method to better understand their own performance and demonstrate accountability.
