Draft summary report of a workshop on integrated natural resource management (INRM) held at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek in the Netherlands, September 3-5, 1999. The seminar was organized by the CGIAR Center Directors Committee (CDC) which prepared this report. In addition to CGIAR centers, participants represented NARS, TAC, IAEG, the CGIAR NGO Committee, non CGIAR international research institutions, advanced research organizations, and donor agencies.The purpose of the workshop was to identify future directions of INRM research in the CGIAR. The range of participation signified an integrated, partnership approach to that research. The workshop identified emerging issues, and identified general and specific criteria for CGIAR projects. It also listed relevant scientific opportunities and breakthroughs, including biotechnology and spatial modeling, and examined the potential of ecoregional and systemwide programs. Obstacles to the adoption of INRM approaches were discussed. As a next step the workshop organized a task force to prepare a scientific meeting on INRM for scientists, research managers, and other stake holders to be held in 2000. It also decided to maintain a website established for the workshop for exchange of information and follow up purposes.Agenda document at TAC 77 and CGIAR International Centers Week 1999.
