Third version of a strategy paper prepared under the auspices of the Center Directors Committee (CBC) by a task force on Central Asia and the Caucasus. It documents the approval by the Group, following the Ministerial Meeting at Lucerne, to add this region to the focus of the CGIAR, the consultations with research institutions in the region, creation and approval of a collaborative program, and plans for future development. The management structure included a Program Steering Committee with representation from each NARS, CGIAR center, and donor, as well as TAC. Also an Executive Committee and a Program Facilitation Unit located in Tashkent.Three research projects were being implemented in germplasm conservation, enhancement and management, on-farm water management, and national research organization and management. Three addition projects were planned on agricultural research policy, livestock production, and watershed management. Annexes describe the current status of the research program and profile the projects.Versions of this strategy were considered by TAC at its 74th, 77th and 78th meetings. TAC found earlier versions provided insufficient guidance for the evolution of CGIAR research in the region.
