DFID provided funding support through FAO for the early development (2008-2010) of the CIARD (Coherence in Information for Agricultural Research for Development) initiative. CIARD's aim was to enable organisations and individuals that create or possess public agricultural knowledge to disseminate it more effectively. This review report describes the origins and purpose of CIARD, it then presents a timeline of development of CIARD resources and activities, and the outcomes of CIARD activities, and finally discusses general issues and the CIARD of the future.
