Report of the TAC Standing Panel on Impact Assessment (SPIA) to CGIAR International Centers Week 2000. It describes SPIA's composition, structure, role within TAC, and relationship to its predecessor, the Impact Assessment and Evaluation Group (IAEG). The report outlines plans for the completion and publication as a book of the Assessment of Germplasm Improvement Impacts, discussed at MTM 2000. An assessment of impacts on poverty alleviation consists of two phases, a review and synthesis of the literature completed in 1999, and an ongoing series of case studies in which IFPRI is collaborating with other centers. An assessment of the impacts of the CGIAR on the environment was in Phase II, the first phase having been reported to ICW 1999. A progress report on this study is found as Appendix A to the document.SPIA also reported on a workshop held in Rome in May 2000 to start the process of formulating realistic and operational guidelines for future impact assessments in the CGIAR. The panel had also started a study of CGIAR contributions to scientific capacity strengthening and partnerships.Agenda document, CGIAR International Centers Week, 2000.
