Extension Proposal and Background Materials

The WHEAT Extension Period Proposal 2015-16 was approved by the CGIAR Fund Council.

Fund Council also approved the WHEAT Window 1 and 2 budget requests, which included proposed ‘new initiatives.’ Note, however, that ‘approval of such budgets’ defines the maximum W 1/2 funding that WHEAT can receive but NOT what it is guaranteed to receive. Why? Because right now – and projected for 2015 – there is not enough money in the W 1/2 pots. So the Consortium Board, which decides on allocating W1 funds to CRPs, could not give the CRPs what the Fund Council decided they should get.

For all CRPs, the final Consortium Board Financial Plan 2015-16, decided in Dec 2014, will be binding.
