Report of the Impact Assessment and Evaluation Group (IAEG) to the CGIAR Mid Term Meeting 1999 on the Group's activities since International Centers Week 1998. The IAEG Secretariat, while under the auspices of the UNDP, was located in Rome and shared facilities with the TAC Secretariat.The IAEG proposed a cost-benefit analysis of CGIAR investment in integrated pest management (IPM) research over the preceding ten years as the subject of its 1999 annual impacts report. An ongoing study of the impact of CGIAR germplasm improvement on food production led by Robert Evenson of Yale University involved all crop-related centers.Three additional studies were at various stages of preparation:1. Impact of agricultural research on poverty reduction managed by Peter Hazell and Lawrence Haddad of IFPRI.2. Impact of the CGIAR on the scientific capacity of NARS, with the NARS Secretariat and ISNAR.3. Impact of CGIAR research on the environment.The report ended with an examination of the original and evolving mandate and long- and short-term strategies of the IAEG, including the relationship between ex ante assessment by TAC and ex post assessment by the IAEG.
