  1. Hi everyone

    I would like to recommend the resources of the Institutional Learning and Change Initiative of the CGIAR. This program, based in Rome and led by Javier Ekboir and Cris Sette have assembled a number of resources on organizational learning, strengthening agricultural research for development and other efforts relevant to our project.
