Making research information publicly available and accessible
The Coherence in Information for Agricultural Research for Development (CIARD) initiative works with organizations that hold agricultural information or that create new knowledge to help them disseminate it more efficiently and make it easier to access. CIARD promotes pathways already explored and documented for making research more accessible. The CGIAR is just one of several partner organizations involved in the CIARD initiative, with the ICT-KM Program actively promoting CIARD pathways through its website, workshops, Share Fairs and other events.
CIARD is closely aligned with the CGIAR’s own Triple A Framework, which was developed by the ICT-KM Program to encourage CGIAR Centers make their information, knowledge and outputs more Available, Accessible and Applicable.
