Report of a September 1986 meeting on WARDA held in Paris, CGIAR Executive Secretary Curtis Farrar presiding. Representatives of several donors, cosponsors, TAC, IITA, IRRI and WARDA participated, as did Moise Mensah who negotiated with WARDA member governments on behalf if the CGIAR. The purpose was to identify remaining issues that needed to be resolved before the CGIAR considered future support to WARDA at its November 1986 meeting. Most of those attending found Mr. Mensah's proposals as adopted by the governing council of WARDA to be an acceptable basis for renewing the relationship between WARDA and the CGIAR, but it was recognized that several steps remained to be taken. A list of participants is annexed.
