A series of Position Papers have been drafted by the CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme (GCP) team in collaboration with external experts. The goals are to communicate the outputs and deliverables from each research component during 2004–2014, and to explore options for enabling and ensuring that the potential benefits of these components will be fully realised in the future.
This paper focuses on the outputs and options for GCP’s Integrated Breeding Platform (IBP). Embedded as annexes are short papers on the Platform's five key elements: Breeding information and Communities of Practice; Data management software; Analysis and decision support software; Data management service; and Breeding and support services.
