Summary prepared by Michael Collinson of discussions at a workshop on ecoregional research organized by the Center Directors Committee and held at ISNAR headquarters in the Hague, August 20-23, 1996. The author added some comments based in part on visits to IRRI, ICRISAT, and some national institutions.Issues addressed at the workshop included the new skills IARCs would require to carry out the ecoregional approach, methods of selection of representative research farms and stations, and the integration of priority setting at local, national and regional levels. A large share of the issues to be addressed would be institutional in nature. Participants stressed the importance of disseminating the rationale and importance of the approach to ensure the participation of NARS and NGOs in ecoregional initiatives.Agenda document, TAC 71.
