Background paper assessing how well existing international banana and plantain research addresses requirements, and the need for increased CGIAR involvement. This is one of a series of desk studies prepared as background for TAC panels in considering institutional options for bringing new research areas into the CGIAR. The paper presents an overview of banana and plantain related work underway at IITA and IBPGR, and at INIBAP, which was being considered as a prospective CGIAR center. It also considers research underway at other national and international institutions.Agenda document, TAC 51 and 52.
