It has an annex on the pros and cons of establishing the CGIAR as an international organization. Among the recommendations were the establishment of a Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) and regional forums, expansion of developing country participation in the CGIAR, the establishment of a CGIAR Steering Committee, continuous and systematic efforts for impact assessment, increased public awareness and fund raising activities, and addition of UNEP to the CGIAR cosponsors.This report and discussion of it at ICW94 formed the basis for a paper on CGIAR governance presented at the Lucerne ministerial level meeting in February 1995.Agenda document at CGIAR International Centers Week, October 1994.
