Report of the TAC fact finding mission in April 1989 to the International Irrigation Management Institute (IIMI) chaired by M.H. Arnold. IIMI was one of ten nonassociated centers being considered for sponsorship by the CGIAR. Missions to these centers were to provide TAC with the bases for recommending whether the Group should incorporate the center.
The report described IIMI's history, mandate, and clients. The IIMI program was examined in terms of its strategy, and its field program, thematic research, and operating approaches. The report also examined the results and impacts of IIMI research and training programs. An overview of IIMI's governance and management structure included a brief description of its methods of operations and relations with other institutions, including national programs, IARCs, and advanced research institutions. A profile of the Center's physical, human, and financial resources followed. The report concluded by relaying issues and concerns expressed by IIMI regarding the search for adequate funding for IIMI thematic research. There were no recommendations.
One of nine such reports considered in closed session at TAC 49.
