Report of the eleventh meeting of the CGIAR Oversight Committee, held in Washington on October 26 and 29, 1996 in conjunction with CGIAR International Centers Week. The Committee discussed the CGIAR's involvement in the Global Forum on Agricultural Research. It made a detailed comment on the conduct of the upcoming system review, while deciding it should not play a steering role in the review. It decided to monitor the transition of TAC toward a more strategic role, and urged participation of TAC in center program planning. Noting the forthcoming publication of six guidelines for center boards, it urged improvement in the diversity of board members, particularly women and representatives of the south and gender balance of IARC boards. The Committee also commented on the change of leadership at WARDA and ICRISAT.The chairman, Paul Egger, reported on this meeting to ICW96. The written report was circulated later.
