Most changes in the CGIAR have occurred in a decentralized manner and few lessons have been drawn from these various experiences. To change in a more deliberate way, the CGIAR needs to develop the capacity to use adaptive management approaches (i.e., to learn during implementation and adapt the strategies as problems and opportunities emerge). To learn how to develop this capacity, ILAC has teamed up with the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) to try out a structure for decentralized experimentation with centralized learning.
