The document outlines the strategic vision for GFAR, the Global Forum on Agricultural Research, which aims to contribute to the SDGs by making agrifood research and innovation systems more responsive and equitable. To achieve this, GFAR focuses on small-scale farmers, who account for 84% of all farms worldwide, by empowering them through collective actions. GFAR also aims to establish partnership principles as a global standard to ensure that agricultural research is done in partnership with the most important actors - small-scale farmers. GFAR plans to conduct an innovation survey among all its 659 members to identify the potential and constraints of innovations on the ground and follow up on members' ideas through future collective actions.
