This is the final version, published in 1994, of TAC's priorities and strategies paper as approved by the CGIAR in 1992 and 1993. Part I, consisting of the first 12 chapters, presents TAC's comprehensive set of CGIAR priorities by activity, sector, commodity, and region. Recommendations include an increased CGIAR emphasis on: Asia; tropical and cool subtropical agroecological zones; roots and tubers, vegetables, oil crops, and banana and plantain; natural resource management, and socioeconomic and public policy research. Chapters 13 and 14 (Part II) of the report address the implications of these priorities for CGIAR strategy and resource allocation, including an ecoregional approach to program planning and implementation.Preparation of this paper was discussed initially at TAC 51, and work on it lasted through TAC 57. The paper was discussed in draft form at the CGIAR Mid Term Meeting in May 1991, as well as at a special consultation in London called by the CGIAR Chairman and moderated by Walter Falcon in February 1992. The first 12 chapters in final form (covering CGIAR priorities) were on the agenda at the CGIAR Mid Term Meeting in May 1992. An initial draft of Part II consisting of Chapters 13 and 14 covering strategic and resource allocation implications of the priorities (found in a separate document) was also discussed at MTM92. Revisions of Chapters 13 and 14 (not in the data base) were discussed at length at MTM93. The final versions of these chapters are included in this document.In addition to the document proper, this record contains a summary of the relevant discussion at the CGIAR meeting of May 1992, a letter of transmittal from the TAC Chair covering the April 1992 version of the document, and TAC recommendations for resource allocation in the period 1994-1998, which were accepted during MTM93.
