The CGIAR at 31 : an independent meta-evaluation of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research - Brazil country paper for the CGIAR meta-evaluation (English)

This country working paper's main objective is to contribute to the OED Evaluation of Global Public Policies and Programs (GPPP), addressing: the impact of the CGIAR in Brazilian research, the ideal partnership between CGIAR, the National Agricultural Research Systems, and the future role of CGIAR in Brazil. The paper describes the creation of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation - Embrapa, in 1972, a private - law public institution with administrative and financial autonomy linked to the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture. In the three following decades, Embrapa played a key role in the development of the Brazilian agricultural sector through the enhancement of plant and animal productivity. This resulted in falling prices paid by the consumers of agricultural products, and greater competitiveness in supplying the national and international markets. Today, Embrapa is considered one of the most important research institutions in the tropics.
