As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Agriculture and Agricultural Research are likely to undergo major transformations. How the pandemic has affected Agricultural Research for Development until now, and which strategies could be adopted by the research community to efficiently respond to future challenges were discussed in the annual Meeting of CIM-Integrated Experts and Returning Experts (CIM-BEAF Meeting) between 07.-08.09.2020. The experts are placed by BMZ/GIZ at International Agricultural Research Centers, including the Centers of the CGIAR, the World Vegetable Center and The International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE). They work on a broad range of topics, including gender, digitalisation, communication and scaling of agricultural innovations.
