Curtis Farrar surveys the initial ten years of IFPRI, beginning with the genesis of the new institute, the early years, its entry into the CGIAR System, its growth in the CGIAR. He looks at the findings and recommendations of IFPRI’s First External Program Review and finally describes IFPRI in its tenth year. The author utilized, as source material, documents of the CGIAR, principally the verbatim and summary reports of CGIAR meetings, reports of TAC meetings, and files of supporting documents in each case, in the CGIAR Secretariat Library at the World Bank. In addition, he used the official files of IFPRI, including minutes and supporting documentation for meetings of the Board of Trustees and its committees, and records and documentation for external program reviews.
