The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) is to expand into new areas of research, including agroforestry, irrigation, fisheries, bananas and plantains. CGIAR will incorporate into its network organizations with already established expertise in these areas. The Kenyan-based International Council for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF), will undertake research on agroforestry. For forestry research, an institutional mechanism is still to be developed. The International Centre for Living Aquatic Resource Management (ICLARM) based in the Philippines, the French-based International Network for the Improvement of Banana and Plantain (INIBAP) and the Sri Lankan-based International Irrigation Management Institute (IMMI) will also be supported and accepted into the CGIAR Network.
