Intervention Package 4 Workshop: Enhancing Value Chains and Regional Trade of the CGIAR-ASEAN Project

February 23, 2024 (Friday) 08:30-17:00 Bangkok, Thailand


The ASEAN-CGIAR Innovate for Food regional program (IFRP) was officially launched during the 45th AMAF by CGIAR, AMS representatives and other key stakeholders. Consisting of eight intervention packages, the IFRP will involve the participation of all 10 ASEAN Member States (AMS) especially in activities that involve cross-country learning. General details about the Regional Program are found in the attachment.

IP4 seeks to stimulate inclusive, efficient, safe, and sustainable agri-food trade and value chains, by providing evidence for and engaging in the best innovations and policies for: improving inclusive trade and market integration; generating evidence on improving value chain efficiency; improving sustainable and resilient agri-food transformation across AMS; and implementing pilot innovations and assessing their potential for scaling up.

In the context of Intervention Package 4 (IP 4), the designated countries for implementation include Cambodia, Indonesia, and Myanmar. Funding availability, as well as interest and top priorities of the AMS are key factors that be taken into consideration.


The workshop is intended to provide a great opportunity to meet and plan for the initial phase of this 10-year program together with important partners and stakeholders between the target countries and CGIAR. Specifically, it aims to:

  • Develop a common understanding of the ASEAN – CGIAR IP 4 and its linkages and complementarities with ASEAN goals, objectives, and guidelines.
  • Garner support and commitment from target countries, local partners, multilateral and bilateral organizations and other stakeholders for the successful implementation of the program’s activities.
  • Involve representatives from target countries, CGIAR and multilateral and bilateral organizations to lend their support and endorsement to the partnership, enhancing its credibility and impact.


The launch is anticipated to have close to 20 participants composed of the following:

  • Senior Official/focal point/representative and experts from think tank of the target countries
