Grain Legumes is global partnership of CGIAR Centers CIAT, ICARDA, IITA and ICRISAT – with ICRISAT designated as the Lead Center.

Partnerships and networking are crucial to Grain Legumes, as the Program focuses on facilitating Research for Development (R4D) activities among a wide array of partners. Grain Legumes will partner with the following players:

  • National agricultural research systems (NARS) in target countries in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA), West and Central Africa (WCA), South and South East Asia (SSEA), Central and West Asia, North Africa (CWANA) and Latin America and Caribbean (LAC),
  • Regional R4D networks,
  • Advanced research institutes (ARI) in both developed and developing countries,
  • Private sector R&D institutions and companies and
  • Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and farmers’ organizations.
