Welcome to our landing page showcasing evaluations of four key platforms within the CGIAR network, commissioned by IAES between 2021 and 2024. These evaluations offer insights into the performance, impact, and recommendations for improvement of the CGIAR Platforms: Big Data in Agriculture, GENDER Platform, Excellence in Breeding Platform (EiB), and Genebank Platform.

The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture was assessed between July and December 2021, providing actionable recommendations for leveraging digital solutions effectively. 

The GENDER Platform underwent summative and formative evaluation from January 2020 to October 2022, aiming to document progress, identify best practices, and offer forward-looking recommendations.

The CGIAR Excellence in Breeding Platform (EiB) was evaluated from August 2021 to April 2022, focusing on relevance, coherence, effectiveness, and sustainability, with actionable recommendations aligned with CGIAR's Evaluation Framework and Policy.

Lastly, the Genebank Platform was evaluated in 2023, identifying good practices and lessons for broader application within the CGIAR network.
