The response of the CGIAR Private Sector Committee to the third CGIAR system review. The comments deal with the importance of CGIAR collaboration with the private sector, and the mechanisms for ensuring collaboration. They urge definitional clarity, particularly of responsibilities, and urge the creation of a central legal/policy body for areas that define the operation of the system as a whole. The Committee finds the report lacking in concrete and realistic priorities, and urges more direct attention to the problems of Africa. It believes that the private sector may provide resources to the CGIAR in cases of mutual benefit, but doubts that companies will become members.Agenda document, CGIAR International Centers Week 1998.
