Recommendation of TAC that IFPRI be included in the CGIAR subject to conditions related to the Institute's mandate and headquarters location. Documents include 'TAC Conclusions and Recommendations on the Inclusion of IFPRI in the CGIAR System' as well as the 'Report of TAC Mission to IFPRI' (of January 1979). Appendix 1, not reproduced here, contained a joint letter from the heads of IDRC and the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations petitioning the CGIAR for IFPRI's incorporation. This letter can be found in an agenda document of the November 1978 CGIAR meeting titled 'Request of the International Food Policy Research Institute for CGIAR Sponsorship and Funding.' Agenda document of the CGIAR meeting in May 1979. Also discussed at TAC Twenty First Meeting in February 1979.
