James L. Garrett

As part of its 2020 Vision for Food, Agriculture, and the Environment initiative, IFPRI held workshops in three developing regions of the world. The workshop on Latin America, jointly sponsored by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT), and IFPRI, was held in Cali, Colombia, March 20-22, 1995. This synthesis is based on discussions among some 30 Latin American researchers, technical experts, and policymakers who participated in the workshop. The facts and figures herein are gleaned from papers presented at the workshop, and the goals and strategies are those reached by the workshop participants.
