About BNI consortium

The International BNI Workshop held at JIRCAS during March 2-3, 2015 was attended by 40 researchers representing four CGIAR Centers (CIAT, CIMMYT, ICRISAT and ILRI) leading four CGIAR Research Programs [CRPs: Climate Change (CCAFS), Wheat (WHEAT), Dryland-Cereals, Livestock-Fish] and several Japanese organizations (National Agricultural Institutes, and universities). JIRCAS, together with CGIAR partners, formed a Consortium on BNI Research for Sustainable Development, with JIRCAS in a convening and coordinating role.
