ICARDA rated “Outstanding”June 30, 2010 at 6:16 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
ICARDA has been rated “Outstanding” by the CGIAR Performance Measurement System – for the third time in four years. This annual assessment is based on a number of criteria including research outputs, impacts and outcomes, Center management and other factors. Based on this, the World Bank will provide funding of US$ 2.05 million in the year 2010, of which $ 1.35 million is linked to the performance assessment.
Director General Dr Mahmoud Solh noted this was a team effort – by the scientists, support staff, management, and the Board of Trustees, “without whose guidance and continuous support this achievement would not have been possible”. Dr Guido Gryseels, former Board Chair, wrote to Dr Solh: “It is a great tribute to you personally, your management team and the staff of ICARDA… I am enormously pleased that our collective efforts are being recognized by our peers and sponsors.”
