In 1994, CIP achieved greaterfinancial stability and passed
a number of important research milestones. After four difficu It
years, the Center is now able to plan for modest increases in
scientific operations.
As readers of past annual reports know, bud get cuts affecting
the development community have reduced the ability of international research centers to fu I ly meet the cha I lenges of food
security and environmental protection.
Th e year 1994 saw significant progress 1n our research
program and a sma ll increase in our investment in training. The
Center ' s mainstay commodity work on potatoes and
sweetpotatoes was marked by advances in breeding for horizontal late blight resistance and the development of true-seed
hybrids. The Center's new biotechnology laboratory for ad vanced research on late blight and glandulartrichomes began
operations in mid-March. These research activities will be
covered comprehensively in the Center's technical report to
be pub I ished in October.
In addition, 1994 marked thefirstfull year of operations forthe
CONDESAN research consortium . Still in its ear ly stages of
development, CONDESAN is helping to promote cooperation
among numerous research partners in an effort to stem natural
resource degradation and to create a sounder base for future
increases in agricultural productivity . CONDESAN was recent ly designated as a core activity by the CGIAR Technical
Advisory Committee (TAC).


The consortium will also play an important role in the CG's

new initiative for sustainable mountain agriculture to be
convened by CIP. The initiative was approved following the
completion of TAC' s recent program and management review
of the Center, which will be presented to CGIAR donors

In this annual report, we present updates on a range of CIP
research activities.


Identification of virus

detection practices.


We begin with an update on our work to conserve genetic

resources within the context of the international debate on
'Jiodiversity. The report covers traditional genetic resources
work as well as a number of novel programs involving community-level germplasm conservation and plant breeding.
The impact of CIP projects in true potato seed, integrated
pest management, and varietal development is also featured.
The three case studies are part of a larger effort to document the
impact of CIP research and collaboration with various partner
agencies around the world.

From a CIP project in Ecuador comes a technical story that

provides surprising results on pesticide pollution and its impact
on the environment and health. The project illustrates the
difficult choices that need to be made to balance future requirements for greater productivity, environmental concerns,
and social equity. The story also points out the pressing need
for more precise information aboutthe effects of technological
change and the difficulties that policy-makers will encounter
when making decisions that will have consequences well into
the future.
The report ends with sections on finance, staffing, governance, and other day-to-day issues. These sections provide an
indication of the level of investment in CIP made by our many
constituents. They include our 35 donors who continue to
generously invest in CIP, our staff who provide the innovations
needed to move forward on a variety of research fronts, and our
cooperators in national systems and NG Os, especially in our
host country Peru, who help to bring the Center's research to
farmers' fields.

Director General
April 1995



without a united strategy or r:irogram. Today,

they are defining a new agen l a for the
safekeeping of the world ' s vi 1al biodiversity.
In October 1994,. the CGl t R chairman ,
Ismail Serageld1n , signed a long-awaited
agreement with the Food an Agriculture
Organization of the United ations placing
these priceless germplasm collections under
the auspices of FAO. The C Q;I AR was the
first major holder of food crop germplasm to
sign the accord.
The pact, which establish s an
intergovernmental legal and olitical
identity for the centers' genebanks , was
signed by the directors gener I of 12 CGIAR-

Thousands of years ago, early farmers ,

such as the Quechuas in the Andean
highlands and the Mayas in Mexico, selected
plants that best suited their varied needs.
This process led to great genetic diversity
among traditional populations of potatoes
and sweetpotatoes . But modern agricultural
practices often mean reliance on a limited
number of high-yielding, genetically uniform
varieties .
Today, genetic diversity is under attack.
Areas rich in plant species are being
destroyed by desertification, deforestation ,
soil erosion , and farming itself. Uncertainty
exists as to whether needed increases in
world food production in the next century
can be obtained without this diversity .
Over the past 25 years, the centers of the
Consultative Group on International
Agricultural Research (CGIAR) have
accumulated the largest collection of
germplasm ever assembled outside of nature.
Center genebanks contain an estimated 80%
of the genetic resources of major food crops
grown in developing countries.

Defining a New Agenda

Until 1994, the centers managed their
genetic resource work independently,

affiliated centers . Hubert Za ~ dstra signed for

CIP. The agreement ushered in a new age in
international cooperation for the
conservation and use of plant genetic
resources and established th first
systemwide approach to managing CGIAR
germplasm resources , which are held in trust
for the benefit of humanity.
The CGIAR-FAO agreeme twas not
without controversy. Some .overnments and
nongovernmental organizations with

environmental and develop ~ent interests

objected to what they saw as foot-dragging
on the part of the World Ban to place the
center collections under the rusteeship of

FAO . The CGIAR insisted it as only

following the recommendat1 co ns of a special
study that advised the centerb to set up a
systemwide network to manage germplasm
resources before entering into an agreement
with FAO. That has now been done. The
network operates as the CGI R Systemwide
Genetic Resources Program nder the
direction of the International Plant Genetic
Resources Institute (IPGRI) .
The CGIAR program now mas a steering
committee to guide policies and the
management of genetic reso rces. The
centers will receive separate l funding for
genetic resources work, and

Rising Global Concerns

Even prior to the CGIAR-FAO pact, there
were rising globa l concerns about the
contin uin g erosion of biological diversity.
The importance of reversing the alarmin g
trend , which is undermining the wor ld' s
biological capita l, resulted in the United
Nations' Convention on Biologica l Diversity,
approved at the Earth Summit in Rio de
Jane iro two years ago. More than 100
countr ies have ratified th e Convention-

The CG IAR has offered the Conve ntion i ts
scientif ic and technical expert ise and

d isputes between gene - rich d eve loping
count ri es and gene-poor developed co un tr ies
over sovereignty , access , ownership of
genet ic resour c es, and intellectual property
ri ghts are certain to be future items on th e
Convention ' s age nda.
Meanwhile, C IP scientists continue in
their urg ent effort to safe g uard Andean roots
and tubers, knowing th ese precious pools of
biodiversity are fast disappearing . To
increase the pace of the work , the Center is
strengthening its use of in format ion and
training to upgrade national program
capabi liti es. The goal is to create a network
in which responsibilities for prese rvation ,
documentation, and distribution of genet ic
materials are broadly shared.
In t hi s report, C IP presents upd ates on
three current biodiversity projects, two in the
Andes - the cent er of origin of the potato
and lesser-known root and tuber crops-and

The Cost of Conservation

Genetic conservation is a painstaking, labo r-intensive, and
costly activ ity. In 19 94, CIP spent $1.5 million on genetic
conservat ion, roughly 8.2 % of its $18.4 million budget.
The figures includ e funding from the German Agency for
Technical Cooperat ion and Swiss Development Cooperat ion

Indonesia's Waga-Waga
Community Harvests First
Sweetpotatoes from
Geneban k In November 1994, the Dani ethnic


community of Waga-Waga, in Indonesia,

celebrated the first harvest from its
sweetpotato community genebank. All of
the farmers who participated in clearing and
tilling the land shared in a feast and
received a portion of the harvest of varieties
selected by the community.
For CIP and Indonesian scientists, the
harvest in Waga-Waga was doubly
meaningful as it yielded fresh insights into
the biodiversity and indigenous knowledge
about the sweetpotato varieties found in th e
central highlands of Indon es ia 's lrian Jaya
A Secondary Center of Diversity

Researchers say the island of New Guinea

(lrian Jaya occupies th e western half) is a
secondary center of diversity for sweetpotato .
"New Guinea has enormous sweetpotato
diversity concentrated in a small area and
contains genetic mate ri als that should be of
use to sweetpotato breeders worldwide," says
Peter Schmiediche, CIP' s regional
representative for East and Southeast Asia
and the Pacific.
Scientists believe the crop was introduced
from South America 400 years ago and
developed in iso lated ecological niches .
During that time, evo lution and local
farming practices greatly broadened its
known frontier. In some instances, lrian
Jayan sweetpotato ca n be found growing at
altitudes of up to 2,800 meters, considerably
higher than the landra ces found in South
"lrian Jaya and Papua New Guinea are the
only places in the world where sweetpotato is
cultivated under subalpine conditions ,"
says Schmiediche. " Its adaptation to colder
conditions should be ex tremely valuable to
major sweetpotato-growing countries such as
China, Vietnam, and Thailand ." Growers
and consumers in New Guinea have

developed hu ge stocks of infor ation about

its use, he says . This indigenouis knowled ge
should also be of value in area where
sweetpotato is a major co mpo ent in local
farming systems, such as in nonthern Luzon
and in the Central African higHlands.
The Waga-Waga Experience

"The potenti al of the region s genetic

material , and the knowledge associated with it,
was largel y untapped in lrian Jaya," says
JUrg Schneider, an anthropolo gist who until

l rian }aya and Papua New

Guinea are the only places in
the world where sweetpotato ts
cultivated under subalpine

recently served as the project' s coordinator.

"We found that a community garden might
contain 40 cultivars, so it was apparent to us
that farmers knew how to manage genetic
diversity, " he says. "A ll of these landraces
have a common genetic base, but it is
narrower than the one found in South
Americ a. lri an Jaya's achievement is local
plant selection- selection driven by
subsistence needs, not market forces or
breeding c riteria ."
One of the initi al findings of the project
was that ge neti c eros ion is taking place in

Feasting on traditional
varieties harvested from
the Waga-Waga
community genebank.

CIP-24: A Well-Traveled Potato

CIP-24, a moderately disease-resistant potato
clone, and one of Chin a's most w id ely grow n
c u lti vars, was more than 40 yea rs in the making
by potato breede rs on four cont in ents.
" Thi s examp le, " says CIP Director Genera l
Hubert Zandstra, "shows how the free exchange
of genet ic materia l and inform ation can t ranslate
into im pact in farmers' field s."
According to CIP scientist Peter Sc hmi ed ic he,
the first crosses lead in g to CIP-24 were made in
Germany in the 1950s using wild potato mate ri al
of unknown or igin. It was part of a co ll ectio n
assemb led in the 1930s. An early set of seeds
obta in ed from c rosses between wi ld spec ies and
European cul tiva rs was eventually sent from
Germany to Argentina for furthe r crossbreed in g.
This German material was c rossbred w ith
varieties well adapted to th e m ain producing
regions of Argentina. One cross made in 197 1,
with parentage that included the first nationally
bred potato variety released by Argent in a in 1946
and two var iet ies released by the U.S.
Department of Agricu lture in the 1930s and
1940s, eventua ll y became CIP-24 . The
eva lu ation of th e var iety was comp leted in 1979
and it was subsequently released in Argent in a as
Achirana- INTA (afte r a famous ln ca n irri gation
ca nal, Achirana, in Peru). It was not a popular
variety with Argentineans, and its planted area
never exceeded a few hectares annua ll y.
In 1976 , CIP seed specialist Jim Bryan
recognized Ach irana as a clone with a potential
for developing co untri es. It subsequent ly came to
CIP headqua rters in Peru fo r additiona l disease
testing, eva lu ation, and distribution. After
promising results in Latin America, the c lone was
sent from CIP to Australia for disease eli minat ion
and further d istributio n in Asia.
CIP-24 was introduced from CIP in to Chin a in
1978 by the Chin ese Academy of Ag ri cu ltu ra l
Sciences (CAAS) as an in vitro plantlet.
Propagation and initial fi eld tri als we re
conducted by the Wumeng Ag ri c ultural Research
In stitute in Inner Mongolia . After multiplication ,
th e test p lantl ets and or igin al seeds were
distributed to many areas in northern Chin a.

By 1993, the var iety had been released in 12

tropical or subtropica l potato-growing countr ies
rangin g from Madagascar to Bhutan. The
cultivar is currently grown on more than
150,000 hectares in Chi na.
CIP-24 is also helping Chin ese potato farmers
deal with drought. Ch in ese sc ient ists say the
var iety yields substant iall y more in drought yea rs
than do loca l c ulti vars. In Inn er Mongolia,
where annua l rainfall ave rages between 400 and
600 millimeters, CIP-24 prod uces steady yie lds
of 1O tons per hectare in poor years and as much
as 20 tons per hectare in good o nes. It is also
commanding good prices, w hi c h is one reason it
can be found in distant markets, such as those in
Guandong province near H ong Kong .

"Lost" Andean Roots and

Tubers Travel Ancient
Trade Routes

Lesser-known Andean oot and

Tuber Crops Maintained by CIP

Researchers from Ecuador, Bolivia , Peru ,

and Brazil completed the first year of a fiveyear project in 1994 to collect, preserve, and
use nine of the lesser-known Andean root and
tuber crop species (see box) .
" Until now, there has been little
international interest in these crops ," says
Miguel Holle, the project coordinator .
"A lot of research has been done, but it's
been isolated pockets , and funding has been
almost nonexistent. "
Holle notes that the project combines
conservation efforts with production and
utilization research. Some 160 scientists
from 22 institutions are receiving grant
money from the project. For many
participants, it represents their first
opportunity to work as part of an
international team and to share information
and data.

Genetic Erosion May Not Be Widespread

Scientists in Bolivia have uncovered
information indicating that genetic erosion of
Andean root and tuber crops may not be as
widespread as previously believed. Project
researchers found that some varieties of oca,

In Situ Conservation:
A Look to the

In a project with broad implications for

the future of biological diversity in the
Andes , plans are being developed to help
farmers reestablish and conserve wild
ancestors of Andean potatoes and other
exotic root and tuber crops in their native
habitats. The proposed project, when fully
funded , will be the first major effort to
establish in situ , or on-farm , conservation for
nine Andean root and tuber crops.

Wild Potato Restoration

Growing among the

cacti, a wild potato,

Solanum bukasovii, is a
candidate for
reintroduction into
diversity hot spots.

For potatoes, the project will establish

protected areas to help restore some of the
most important wild species currently
preserved in genebank collections. To
identify these sites , participating scientists
from CIP and national pro g rams will use
information obtained from the lnterGenebank Potato Database , which covers all
cultivated and wild potato species. This
information will be used to identify " hot
spots ," or areas where the greatest number of
wild species were found by previous
collecting expeditions.
Project scientists will then conduct
surveys to determine the status of
biodiversity and the degree of genetic
erosion in each hot spot. These efforts
should provide the scientific basis for
extensive in situ restoration of the species
that originally grew in hot-spot areas .

Community Plant Breeding

In what may well be the most novel
component of the project, scientists will also
help farmers use botanical seed-or true
potato seed-to select new c ltivars
according to local needs and preferences.
The use of true seed, commonly known by its
acronym TPS, will give farmers a measure of
crop insurance against drougnt and frost.
When TPS is used for breeding , there is
great variation in its offspring. The project
will encourage farmers to usel this natural
variability to select genetic mbterials that
solve local problems. For example , farmers
whose crops are infected with potato wart
will be able to select resistan t clones. This
should reduce their dependence on imported
seed , help increase genetic dt ersity, and
reduce the need for chemical sprays .
In addition , by using TPS, local
communities can flush out yi Id-reducing
viruses , a procedure that can now be done
onl y in laboratories. The project will also
help determine the tolerance or preference of
communities for nonuniform ! rops, while
maintainin g genetic diversity.

Virus Eradication
For traditional farmer culti ars , or
landraces, project scientists al o plan to step
up efforts to eradicate viruses and other
diseases in all existing potato accessions
currently held in trust in CIP' World Potato
Collection. Virus-free duplic tes of
traditional cultivars will be p ovided to
national genebanks according to country of
A similar service will also @e provided for
the lesser-known And ean root and tuber
crops. Studies are currently under way at
CIP to develop diagnostic techniques and
determine the most efficient vy ay to
eradicate the viruses that attack these crop
species. This research will closely resemble
past successful efforts by CIP v irologists
working with potatoes and sweetpotatoes.

Potato Varietal Releases: A Study in Slow Motion

In Europe and North America, the
potato vari eties that people eat today are
much th e same as those their parents and
grandparents ate years ago. The most
popul ar potato va ri et y in th e United
States, Russet Burbank, was bred in 1872.
The story in deve lopin g cou nt ri es is
q ui te different . C IP economist Thomas
Walker notes that ov"er the past 20 years,
developi ng co untries have proven
themselves more likely to rel ease and use
new var ieti es than industrialized nations.
In Europe and North America , market
forces and a depend ence o n
agrochemica ls ha ve v irtu all y locked o ld er
var iet ies into place. Th is is not so,
however, in the deve loping wor ld , where
farmers are eager to expe rim ent w ith less
c hemically dependent breedin g lin es .
Potato varieties rele ased in the 1970s
and ear ly 1980s, Walker says , came
a lm ost exc lu sively from c lo nes bred in
industria li zed countr ies and , to a lesse r
extent, from national breeding programs

Pesticides Threaten Ecuadorian

Farmers, But Soil and Water
Are Untouched


In the fields above San Gabriel in th e

mountain s of northern Ec uador, a farmer w ith
a backpack spraye r appl y in g a pesticide to a
potato crop is a common scene.
This sce ne, repeated daily on million s of
farms throughout the deve lop in g world , poses
a dilemma. It has polarized two important
interest groups-e nv ironm entalists and
ag riculturali sts-a nd locked them in a bitter
polic y struggle.
In re cent yea rs, the debate on th e
sustainability of modern ag ri c ultural
technology has increasingly foc used on
health and env ironmental issues. Concerns
includ e depletion of natural reso urces, so i I
erosion, water pollution, deforestation , and
the contamination and poisoning caused by
agricultural c hemical s. The dilemma is how
to balance ag ricultural development that
includes th e use of che mi ca l inputs w ith the
demands of sustainabl e agr ic ulture th at is
environmentally sound.
The iss ue is not ju st an academ ic question
in Ecuador. Environmental groups th ere c laim
that potato fa rm ers w ho use chem ica l
pesticid es are poisoning the envi ronm ent.
Based on th ese arguments, the environmental
lobby has recom mended banning numerous
pesticides , in c ludin g insecticides used to
control th e Andea n potato weev il , th e most
devas tatin g potato pest in the Andes. Th e
farm lobby opposes this proposition.

Classic Agriculture-Environment Conflict

Charles Cri ssma n, a C IP eco nomi st, says
that th e Ecuadorian situat ion is a classic
agriculture-environment co nfli ct-the tradeoff betwee n agr icultural production and
environmental quality. With powerful
intere sts on bot h sides, the iss ue w ill in all
eve ntu ality be decided in the political arena .
Unfortun ate ly, issues such as this are
characterized by a lack of so lid inform ati o n
on the size of potential trade-offs. For
example: H ow much agricultural produ ct io n

mu st be g ive n up to impro ve the env ironment

or hea lth ? Politi c ians, w ho intwiti ve ly
und erstand trade-offs, frequently operate
w ith o ut the inform ation needed to back up
th eir decisions.
Add ress in g the env ironment agriculture
dil emma, the CGIAR is encour . gi ng its
member in stitution s to incorpo ate iss ues of
su stain ab ility into the ir researc lh age nd as .
One response of the CG IAR ce ters has been
to ini tiate resear c h p rogra ms based on
agroecosyste ms rath er than on commod ities
alon e.
In a rece nt res earc h project headed by
Crissman , the Center loo ked at ,y ie ld and the
envi1onmental and health imp acts of
pesticide use in potato product on in the San
Gabriel area. Bes id es sheddin li ght o n th e
ongoing Ecuador debate, the ri sea rc h is
va lu ab le for the Center, w ho se_ lprin c ip al
c harge is to generate improved agr icu ltural
technologies , especially for por fa 1mers.
" New tec hnolog ies ca n increase cro p
y ield s an d farm in co m es, but t h\ ey can also
have indirect or 'off-s ite' impa cr ts," Cri ss man
says. " The se latter imp acts haJe become
more important in eva lu atin g new
techno log ies and ret urn s to research. For
example, the largest benefit of i ntegrated pest
m anage ment (!PM ) m ay not be fewer cro p
lo sses, but rather the red uced ontamination
from less insecti c id e use. "

Ecuador's Catholi c Univers ity, Montana

A Agricultural

Trade-off frontiers are frequently used to illustrate concepts of efficiency, choice, and technological change. This
fi gure shows that for an improvement in environmental
quality from e toe ' , the community must sac rifi ce agricultural production from p to p'. Whether a one-unit improvement in the environment is worth two units of lost
agricultural production is a decision for policy-makers. In
the case of the San Gabriel stud y, a new late-blightresista nt potato variety that requires less fungicide should
cause the frontier to shift outward from AB to AC. The
result would be a higher level of environmental quality for
the sa me level of production.

A seri ous li mitation for making environmental

researc h compati ble w ith po licy ana lys is is the unit
of measu rement by w hi ch the models operate. A
soil sc ientist typ ica ll y works at the plot or field
leve l w hereas po li cy analysis is co nducted at the

nationa l o r reg io nal leve l. Th e prob lem is one of

aggregation , that is, how to aggr ate up from a
fi eld- leve l obse rvation to a ~n i t c mpatibl e w ith
policy analysis. In the framework of the San
Gabrie l stud y, models were used to measure
probabil ity distributions representing phe nomena
such as weather, physica l c haracteri stics of the
fi eld, pesticide app li cations, and-linput and output
pri ces. These probab ility distribJti ons are
inco rpo rated into the integrated simul atio n mode l,
which permits a se ri es of "what if" q uestions.
Th e "what if" questions ca n include sce nari os
of d iffe rent eco nom ic polici es such as taxes o n the
pestic ides, pri ce suppo rts for potatoes, o r changes
in techno logy such as the introduction of varieti es
wi th res istance to late blight o r IPM practices. By
inserting these c hanges into th e integrated
simul ation mode l, a series of poi t estim ates of
ag ri cultural output and env iron ental o r hea lth
qu ality is produced . Th ese po in are co nn ected,
thus creatin g the trade-off possibi li ty frontier .
Q uestio ns of susta in ab le agri ulture lead to
co nsiderations of off-s ite effects of ag ri cultural
practices that lead to co ncern for the state of the
ecosystem in w hi ch agriculture operates. CIP has
recently begun resea rch on these pheno mena.
This set of prob lems is distinct fr<Dm that of
reso lv ing co mm od ity-related pro lems with
experim ental tria l-type agricu ltu rual resea rc h and
ca ll s for new thinking o n metho s. The research
o n pest icid e im pacts in Ecuador is illu strative of
possib le new resea rch methods. Th ese methods
still use the we ll -estab li shed strengths of
di sc ipli nary resea rch, but new mean ing is given to
the word "i nterdiscip linary" when discip li nary
co ncess io ns are made to accom odate d ifferent
units of measureme nt, makin g it possible to

A Renewal of the International Agricultural
Research System
For nearly a quarter century, the CGIAR-the Consultative Group on
Intern at ion al Agricultural Research- has been one of th e most
effective mea ns for advancing sustainable agriculture and food
security in developing countries.
A voluntary co nsortium of some 45 private and public donors,
CGIAR provides funding for 16 intern ation al agricultural resea rch
centers. In 19 71, it began by supporting a nucleus of four ce nters
workin g on the production of the basic food crops grown in tropical
CIP w as accepted as a CGIAR cente r in 1972 . Tod ay, the CG
system also in c ludes research on livestock, forestry, fish eri es,
irri gation , policy, and institution building.
By taking adva ntage of the scientific breakthroughs of the Green
Revolution , the CGIAR quickly became a lead ing researc h co ntributor
in efforts to meet the challenge of glob al hun ger and pove rty. Late r,
th e ce nters responded to intern at ion al co nce rns for safeguarding
dwindling natural resources and ac hi ev in g environmentally sustainab le
developm e nt.
Tod ay, the CGIAR is undergo in g a process of renewal involvin g the
deve lopm ent of more sharply focused research priorities, improved
governance, and greater efforts to promote scientific partn ership s. To
those ends, the system ' s three co-spo nsors-the Food and Agriculture
Organization (FAO) of the United Nation s, th e United Nations
Deve lopment Programme (UNDPL and th e World Bank-h ave
appealed to supporters for assistance. Led by the World Bank' s onetime spec ial financial package app rov ed in 1994, government
agencies, multil ateral donor organizations, and private foundations are
responding to th e CGIAR's finan c ial needs for a long-term commitment
to meet g lob al food demand that is expected to doubl e by 2025.
Developments at CIP reflect the c hanges taking place in the CGIAR
system. Drawi ng on its extensive ge rmpl asm collections, CIP has
mad e impress ive ga ins in the sustainable improvement of potato and
sweetpotato worldwide, while in co rporat in g environmental co nce rn s
into its programs and worldwide netwo rk s.
Tod ay, with an international emph as is on ecoregions, CIP is ready
to use its extensive experience in mountain agriculture to co nvene
proj ects
involving a variety of partners, in c luding CGIAR ce nters,
nation al systems, nongovernmental organizations, and the private
sector. The work will promote more sustainable agricultural systems
in the Andes, Him alayas, and hi ghl and s of East Africa.

CIPFIS, Cl P's on-line
project-based budgeting


CIP made special efforts in 1994 to maintain

the strength of its potato and sweetpotato
commodity programs, w hile carrying out new
responsibilities in tropical mountain ecologies.
The Center's response to Agenda 21 and to
other international efforts to sustain environmental
quality has resulted in a small program for
threatened Andean root and tuber crops focused
on preserving their biodiversity in mountain
regions. CIP also became the convening center
within the CGIAR for a global research program on
Sustainable Mountain Agricultural Development.
The Center's financial health brightened
considerably after three consecutive years of
downsizing, the retirement of outstanding debt,
and improved conditions in Peru. CIP is now well
poised to meet future challenges. The Center' s
total core budget for 1994 was $18.4 million, up
from $15.6 million in 1993. The increase w as
partially due to pledges for new core acti v ities in
mountain agriculture and a restricted core activity
for sweetpotato research in Southeast Asia. In
addition, the Center shifted- at the request of the
CGIAR-more than $2 million in complementary
funding into its core budget, thereb y allowing the
