Report of the Task Force on Ecoregional Approaches to Research established at ICW94 It was presented at the CGIAR Mid Term Meeting in Nairobi, May 1995 by Task Force Chair Cyrus K. Ndiritu, Director of the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI). This task force was twinned with the Task Force on Sustainable Agriculture which also reported to MTM95.The report said that the ecoregional approach could focus and integrate commodity and thematic research, and link technological opportunity to the formulation of land use strategies and policies. The complex relationships implicit in the approach required clear assignments of responsibilities and partnerships among the participants. The Task Force proposed a matching fund to attract contributions for NARS and other local participants, and endorsed the TAC recommendations of 39% of CGIAR funding in the near future, and a fifteen year initial time horizon.Annexes include the original and revised terms of reference of the task force, and a list of members.
