    Report of the External Review of the Systemwide program on Alternatives to Slash and burn (ASB) 2006

    ASB team members are very appreciative of the tremendous effort put forth by the Review Panel to produce a carefully considered, objective and thorough evaluation of the ASB System-wide Programme. This is the fourth external review of the ASB Programme, but the first sponsored by the CGIAR. We greatly appreciate the Science Councils interest in and support for this timely review. It focuses far more than previous reviews on the Programmes impact in the words of the Panel, on its accomplishments and original contributions to the understanding and practice of iNRM in the worlds tropical forest margins. The members of the ASB Consortium, its Global Steering Group (GSG), and its Global Coordination Office (GCO) have found this review to be particularly useful in stimulating thought and discussion about the impacts of the Programme, the effectiveness of our informal organisational structure, and our future directions. We value the insights and recommendations put forth by the panel and , as we move forward into our second decade, we see this review as a significant benchmark against which we will be able to measure the success of current and future endeavours.

    Report of the Sixth External Program and Management Review (EPMR) of the Centro Internacional de Agricoltura Tropical (CIAT) 2008

    Two key findings from the review were the need to overcome governance and management shortcomings and to clarify CIAT’s future strategic research agenda. The Panel recommended improvements in seven categories: organization and planning of research, research management, specific research topics, regional organization of research, intellectual property, center management, and governance. The Council agrees with the Panel that the Center needs to quickly emerge from the most recent turmoi l and instability by rethinking its research strategy and by revitalizing its leadership. The SC concurs that this is a crucial time for CGIAR donors to invest collectively in CIAT’s turnaround, subject to program, governance and management changes detailed in the EPMR report.

    Report of the Sixth External Program and Management Review (EPMR) of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) - CGIAR 2008

    The International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) is one of the longest established Centers of the CGIAR and currently is the largest in terms of budget. IITA’s target is the improvement of African development through research on agriculture. The Sixth External Program and Management Review of the Center took place between March and June 2007. The review was conducted at a time when the context of agricultural research in Africa is changing; there is both the stark reality of current poverty levels and population growth still to be accommodated (an anticipated increase of 80‐100 million more people by 2012) and a sense of renewed purpose. The Millennium Development Goal of halving the proportion of poor people is still within reach at the worldwide level, but many individual countries in Sub‐Saharan Africa will most likely not reach this goal and, in some, average poverty rates remain above 40 percent. The Africa Union’s NEPAD Comprehensive African Agricul tural Development Program (CAADP) helps provide a framework for harmonized and responsive action into which research efforts can fit.
