The funding base for agricultural research needs to be reconstructed to enable it to face some sobering challenges in the next century. In spite of high potential payoffs in terms of food security, agricultural research in many developing countries faces severe financial difficulties. Research leaders need to improve policies, to mobilise more resources, and to upgrade the management of what are scarce finances. This Sourcebook makes a detailed assessment of current financing research, and reviews available policy options as well as strategies for better mobilisation of sectors and financial management. It is targeted towards leaders of national agricultural research systems, the directors of research centres, heads of research coordinating bodies and policy makers, who define the flow of finance to agricultural research. Given the scope of its coverage, it could be a source of inspiration, comfort or guidance to leaders of research in other sectors, who are faced with similar financial stringencies. The book has four sections, that examine key policy options in today's competitive financing environment, review strategies for raising resources, look at financial management practices in public research institutions, and review public agricultural research finance in the developing world.
