The conference was preceded by one held December 1999 to January 2000 that focused on vision and strategy for the CGIAR.The specific issues addressed were managing genetic resources and intellectual property; management of global, regional, and ecoregional programs; management and structure of the IARCs; and reforming the central bodies and functions of the CGIAR.The synthesis was considered by TAC at its 79th meeting, by the Oversight Committee and by the Synthesis Group at Sonning, UK. It was circulated as background to the report of the Synthesis Group at CGIAR International Centers Week 2000.
