Papers from CGIAR Science Forum 2009
On 16-17 June 2009, the CGIAR Science Forum 2009 was held in Wageningen, the Netherlands, convened by the Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). It brought together over 300 scientists, donors and civil society groups from 55 countries to debate recent advances in genomics, biofortification, bio-based products and other technologies that can reduce food insecurity in developing countries. A special open access issue of the journal Crop Science has now been published containing a selection of papers presented at the Forum. See the website
