Report of a task force assigned to formulate a CGIAR response to UNCED's Agenda 21, and the conventions on biological diversity, climate change, and desertification that were now emerging from it. The task force prescribed four CGIAR global initiatives: Marginal Soils, Genetic Resources, Human Resources, and a joint effort with the UNEP to develop a geographic information system (GIS) and agroecological database. It was proposed that all four initiatives be financed by a UNEP trust fund administered by a steering committee comprised of CGIAR and non-CGIAR representatives, with a full time facilitator.Appendixes are a detailed proposal for the GIS, and terms of reference for the proposed trust fund.Agenda document at TAC 62 and CGIAR International Centers Week, October 1993.
