Mainstreaming of biofortification in the African Union: Evaluation of CGIAR contributions to a policy outcome trajectory

The purpose of this case study is to generate evidence and lessons learned on the contributions of CGIAR in stimulating policy changes that created an enabling environment for agri-food systems innovation. The objectives are: 1. To determine and document how and in what ways CGIAR interventions contributed to the mainstreaming of biofortification in the AU; 2. To identify other major actions/factors that contributed to the AU biofortification trajectory; 3. To generate findings to strengthen CGIAR contributions to the AU biofortification trajectory; 4. To contribute to a synthesis document that compares and contrasts the ways in which CGIAR actions have influenced policy in four cases.
