This guidance note is intended for use by teams preparing an Expression of Interest (EoI) in response to SPIA’s December 2023 open call on country-level studies. The goal is to explain what we mean by a stocktake of CGIAR innovations – one of the core deliverables of each SPIA country-level study – and provide some insight into the methods and level of effort required to produce one. More detailed methodological guidance will be made available in mid-2024 to support those teams invited to develop full proposals.
