    The overall goal of the research carried out by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and its partners continues to be to improve the livelihood of low-income people in developing countries through reduced poverty, food insecurity, malnutrition, gender inequality, and child mortality, to help cope with HIV/AIDS, and to foster better institutions, policies, and sustainable management of natural resources of particular importance to agriculture and poor people. The goal is fully compatible with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the CGIAR aims to make the greatest possible contribution not only to their achievement but also to the achievement of similar goals beyond 2015. This aim is reflected in the effort to set priorities for CGIAR research to 2015 reported here.

    The Report of the Third EPMR of ICRAF was discussed at the Fifth Meeting of the SC (April 10- 12, 2006) in the presence of Panel Member, Dr. Chris Harwood (on behalf of Prof. Jeffery Burley, Panel Chair, who was unavailable due to illness), the Chair of ICRAF’s Board of Trustees, Dr. Eugene Terry, and the Director General of ICRAF, Dr. Dennis Garrity. The SC thanks the Panel Chair and Members for a constructive, frank and thorough report offering a clear overview and assessment of ICRA F’s research, management and governance. The Panel clearly recognizes the seminal contributions ICRAF has made to defining and advancing the science of agroforestry and the importance to the CGIAR of developing and implementing a strategic vision for systemsbased integrated natural resources management (INRM) that fully involves both the biophysical and social sciences. The Panel notes, in particular, that the Center undertook nine CCERs in the intervening seven years, including four in 2005 alone, and that the Panel carefully reviewed each of these. In response to the 2nd EPMR (1998), the Center developed a new strategy document in 2000, has monitored and adapted its organizational arrangements to address its updated strategy, reorganizing programs and integrating the research and development-support aspects of its agenda within each global theme in 2003, ultimately leading to a new Vision and Strategic Planning Framework adopted in 2005. The Panel endorses ICRAF ’s vision, mission and goals and found them well-aligned with the new System priorities. Indeed, the Panel confirms that “ICRAF is well positioned to address the new CGIAR priorities…and can contribute to each of the five CGIAR system priority areas”. The Report of the 3rd EPMR makes 15 constructive recommendations: 2 concerning strategic research priorities, 4 on Regions and Systemwide programs, 6 on Governance and Management, and 3 on internal organizational changes. The EPMR Repor t offers as well 43 detailed suggestions for the Center and its Board to consider. The SC fully endorses all 15 recommendations. It is pleased to note that ICRAF agrees with and is already moving to implement 11 of these, and that it is committed to further analyzing in detail the remaining 4 recommendations. Given the nature of the recommendations and concerns these raise, the SC recommends that a smaller-scale, focused review be undertaken in 12 months’ time of ICRAF’s progress in ad dressing 4 of these recommendations, as enumerated below.
