CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food

The CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food piloted new ways of increasing the resilience of social and ecological systems through better water management for food production. From 2002 to 2013, the program supported more than 120 research projects in ten of the world’s largest river basins.

This website presents the program’s findings on the water, food, and poverty challenges faced by the world today. It also provides insights into lessons learned on CPWF’s research-for-development approach. We hope that researchers, academics, development professionals, policy makers, donors, and other interested visitors will find this site to be a relevant and valuable resource.

The insights and knowledge gained from CPWF’s twelve years of work are being integrated into the CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems.
