Report of the twenty-first meeting of the CGIAR Oversight Committee, held in Durban, South Africa on May 19 and 20, 2001 in conjunction with the 2001 CGIAR Mid Term Meeting. The Committee discussed the report of the Change Design and Management Team report and plans for deliberation of its recommendations at the Mid Term Meeting, director general successions at CIFOR, ICRAF, IITA, and ILRI, and the IBSRAM-IWMI merger. The roles of CGIAR Cosponsors and relationship with the Executive Council following the anticipated organizational change, and the possibility of a greater role by IFAD were also considered. CGIAR participation in the upcoming World Food Summit Plus 5, and G8 Genoa, and World Sustainable Development Summits would require communications strategies, while CGIAR involvement in negotiations surrounding the Convention on Biological Diversity and International Undertaking on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture would require attention to members' positions.
