The Fifth External Programme and Management Review of IPGRI was conducted by a Panel chaired by Dr. Mike Gale of the John Innes Institute, UK. The Review Report and IPGRI's Board and Management Response to the Report were discussed by iSC at its 84th Meeting at FAO in Rome, Italy, in June 2003.
The Report is accompanied by two attachments. The first contains the Response of IPGRI to the Panel Report. The second is the iSC Commentary, which summarizes iSC's reaction to the Panel's Report and to the Response of IPGRI's Board and Management. The Report is highly complimentary of IPGRI’s many achievements and the Centre was found to be steadily growing in terms of finances, staff and programmes. It also noted that the steady growth in programmes has to be matched by appropriate adjustments in the Institute’s governance and management systems and procedures.
This report was presented during the Business Meeting at AGM 2003.
