Report by CGIAR Executive Secretary Curtis Farrar on developments at WARDA during the first five months of 1985. A covering memorandum sets forth the schedule for interaction between the CGIAR and WARDA for the remainder of the year, and refers to a TAC subcommittee report, which was attached to the record of TAC 37. The report of a CGIAR financial team visit to WARDA is attached. There is mention of a report of the Fifteenth Ordinary Session of the Scientific and Technical Committee Meeting of WARDA, but this is not attached. The documentation included constituted the basis for a CGIAR discussion of WARDA at the Mid Term Meeting held in June 1985.
This report completed the series of three monitoring reports suggested by TAC in its commentary on the external reviews of WARDA. It was clear that a number of issues remained to be addressed
