Social Science at CIAT: building on the past, creating the future
Description: Panel discussion during CIAT’s 50th Anniversary. With the following introductory statement – “The mission of CIAT is to accelerate agricultural and economic development and to increase agricultural production and productivity in order to improve the diets and welfare of the people of the world. In addition, CIAT is concerned with increases in buying power of urban residents in the sense that they may be able to purchase more and thus benefit from the increased food supplies.” Later, CIAT’s mission would focus increasingly on raising incomes for smallholder farmers, concentrating on 4 major crops and more recently CIAT has embraced a ‘Sustainable Food Systems’ paradigm. As the CGIAR has evolved into a more development focused organization social sciences become even more important than in the past. What was the original thinking at the beginning of social science at CIAT, and particularly agricultural economics? Moderator: John Lynam, CIAT Emeritus Panelists: Per Pinstrup-Andersen, Professor Emeritus, Cornell University, former CIAT Scientist Alberto Valdés, International Consultant, former CIAT Scientist Grant Scobie, former Director General, CIAT Final Celebrations at Headquarters. 9 November 2017
