Report of the CGIAR Steering Committee on International Livestock Research considered at TAC 62 and CGIAR International Centers Week, October 1993. The report discussed the Group's proposed new integrated livestock strategy, which stressed the role of livestock - and ruminants in particular - as components of combined crop-tree-livestock production systems. It proposed creation of a new livestock center (later to be designated ILRI) using ILCA and ILRAD as a base. A timetable and consultative approach for planning the center, and internal planning at the two existing centers were proposed.The new center would conduct strategic research, and serve as a convener for collaborative efforts in livestock. The committee noted that TAC, recognizing the location specificity of most livestock production systems, had recommended concentration on seven ecoregional collaborative programs.
