dc.description.abstractDocument includes the summary of the CGIAR discussion in May 1984 of both the program and management reviews of IITA, transmittals of the External Program Review (EPR) from the TAC Chair and M. H. Arnold, chairman of the EPR panel, a response from IITA, TAC's commentary, and the text of the report of the EPR of IITA, which was conducted during September and October 1983.The panel suggested that IITA should have a global mandate for research in high rainfall, low altitude tropics. There was a danger that too much identification with Nigeria, or even a region of Africa, might invite political interference. The panel believed that IITA should have the CGIAR mandate for soybeans, starchy bananas, and cocoyams. TAC joined the panel in citing research progress on breeding cassava varieties resistant to diseases, biological control of cassava pests, weevil resistant sweet potatoes, improved methods for propagating yams, short duration varieties of cowpea, and genetic resistance to maize streak virus. TAC recommended that IITA should decentralize its activities more beyond its host country. TAC saw IITA's mandate as involving work on farming systems and crops for which it held secondary responsibilities in the humid and sub-humid areas only, and work on its primary mandate crops, cowpeas, yams, and sweet potatoes, in collaboration with other centers on a global basis.en_US
