May 9, 1997 letter from CGIAR Chairman Ismail Serageldin to heads of delegation to the CGIAR, in preparation of discussions at the mid term meeting later that month. The Chairman described the outcome of a stakeholders consultation on biotechnology he had convened in April to review the state of the art and the opportunities for CGIAR research. The letter addressed staff reductions at CIAT, ICRISAT, and IRRI, and urged donors to increase support to older centers. It also announced the members names of the panel that would be conducting the third System Review of the CGIAR.
