Implications for Other Events

This workshop drew on and complemented the conclusions of the April 1998 international workshop, sponsored by the International Center for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF), which sought to assess the impact of research in natural resources management.

In addition, the conclusions of the CIAT workshop dealing with the impact of agricultural research on poverty reduction will contribute importantly to a global conference in the year 2000 being organized by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Impact Assessment and Evaluation Group (IEAG) of the CGIAR. More than one theme of this workshop will feed directly into themes examined by the IFPRI/IEAG conference. For that reason IFPRI has agreed to provide partial funding for the CIAT workshop.
