Process for agriculture assessment clarified
News||26 November 2002|update 31|
At a meeting in Dublin in early November the World Bank discussed the process for its new global assessment of agricultural science and technology. A six month discussion period has just started to see whether and how the two year review process could be done. Civil society groups successfully argued - using the precedent of the World Commission on Dams - that more representatives of poor and marginalised rural communities should be on the steering committee which will decide next year how to proceed.
