The world's largest and most influential international agricultural research network, the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), is conducting its first full systemwide review in 17 years. In May, 1998 in Brayil, a prestigious review panel led by Maurice Strong will table its recommendations for the future of the network, which launched the Green Revolution. Among the critical areas for review are the CGIAR's antiquated governance structure and membership system, the re-orientation of its research toward sustainable agriculture, addressing the problem/potential of biotechnology, and the renegotiation of CGIAR's relationships with national agricultural research networks, agribusiness, and farming communities.
