Quarterly Update Briefings by CABI CEO (Virtual)

CABI’s quarterly update briefings are via videoconference and are for all Liaison Officers and Executive Council delegates. These briefings will be aligned with the CABI Governing Board calendar (June, October and December) to augment the face-to-face Executive Council meeting in March so that Member Countries can be made aware of business and financial progress, risks and opportunities, as well as key decisions and recommendations made by the Board.

Review Conferences

The overall governance of CABI comes from the Review Conference of Member Countries, which reviews CABI’s work programmes and determines our broad policies and strategies. Review Conferences enable CABI to listen and engage directly with our Member Countries.

Our 21st Review Conference was held in Oxford, UK on the 27-28 September, 2022. CABI’s Medium-Term Strategy 2023-2025 was presented and agreed on, following discussions with our Member Countries through our Regional Consultations. Joint plans for work on some of the greatest challenges include food security, climate change, biodiversity loss and gender inequality.

Regional Consultations

We regularly hold consultations to understand the key issues affecting agriculture and the environment in our Member Countries. Together, we develop priority areas in which CABI has the capability to address in some way. As previously, the consultation meetings aim to align our work with national and regional needs, develop frameworks for activities and set a path to ensure these are appropriately funded, resourced and translated into vital and effective programmes.

Regional Consultations take place in Africa, Asia and the Americas and Caribbean.
