Report of the 1986 external review mission to IBPGR. Because of the special situation of IBPGR within FAO, the external program and management aspects of the review were combined, but published as separate parts (I and II) of the document. Includes a summary of the CGIAR discussion at the meeting of June 1985, transmittals and comments from TAC and the CGIAR Secretariat. FAO and the IBPGR Board also commented. The report was considered at TAC 35.While finding much to praise in the accomplishments of the IBPGR, the review panel was strongly of the opinion that scientific quality of staff needed to be improved. It thought this would be difficult while operating under the rules and regulations of the FAO. Other management problems related to FAO procedures were identified. The review proposed steps to deal with these problems, but suggested that the CGIAR create a committee to recommend needed action.
