This paper is intended to respond to demands for an assessment on the scientific, technical and institutional issues associated with agricultural production, food (systems, safety, quality, security) and enhancing livelihoods in order to improve the quality of the information available for decision makers on these issues at the national and international levels as well as to provide information useful to farmers and consumers. Because assessments must be demand-driven, owned by all stakeholders and targeted to well-defined user audiences, the World Bank is initiating an international consultative process to develop the appropriate authorizing environment for an assessment, and to determine the objectives and value of an international assessment, the key questions to be addressed, the principles, procedures, and timetable to be followed. This paper was discussed during the stakeholder meeting at AGM02, agenda item 6.Authorship is not specified.
