Report of P. Mahadevan, a consultant commissioned by TAC to prepare proposals for an international water buffalo program. Based on an analysis of the world distribution of water buffalo and their economic importance, and an assessment of current national research on buffalo nutrition, reproduction, breeding, health problems and production systems, the author identifies priority areas for research. Consideration of a number of institutional and organizational alternatives leads to the recommendation for an international network of cooperating national institutions for buffalo research. Agenda document presented at the seventeenth meeting of TAC, September 1977.
