Fifth, the biotechnology revolution, the emergence of intellectual property rights, and the associated rapid increase in private sector investments have challenged some CGIAR donor constituencies. Thus, to avoid controversy among Centers and within its membership, which makes decisions by consensus, the CGIAR leadership has not explored the full implications of the biotechnology revolution for the System—a response reinforced by the autonomy of the 16 Centers. Three changes in the funding processes of the CGIAR since the mid-1990s have also increased the influence of individual donors (and their domestic constituencies) on the research expenditures of the CGIAR.

6 Evidence on the impacts of NRM, policy, and social science research is lacking. IFPRI’s policy research is the only research in the System that is systematically reviewed by the System, and hence available for the meta-evaluation. 7 Likewise, although participatory research has become popular in the CGIAR, neither its methods nor its costs and benefits have been evaluated (Gladwin, Peterson, and Mwale 2000). A recent CGIAR conference on the System’s social science research makes a strong case that more upstream social science research on the determinants of household and group adoption of technologies would avoid wasteful expenditure on biophysical research.
