CGIAR Consortium Spending Trends
Despite accounting for a minimal share of global public agricultural R&D spending (3.1 percent in 2008), the CGIAR Consortium makes a significant contribution to agricultural R&D in developing countries. After more than a decade of slow growth, spending by the CGIAR has increased since 2006. In 2011, total CGIAR spending exceeded $700 million, representing a 41 percent increase over 2006 levels (in inflation-adjusted terms). Close to half of all CGIAR spending has been allocated to Africa south of the Sahara since 2007. In 2008, the CGIAR’s share of public agricultural R&D spending in Africa south of the Sahara was 11 percent—more than twice as much as its shares in Asia-Pacific and West Asia and North Africa, and a third more than its share in Latin America and Caribbean.
