ICARDA Annual Report 1996
Communication Team ICARDA. (1/1/1997). ICARDA Annual Report 1996. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
One of the major activities during 1996 was the development of a new Medium-Term Plan (MTP) for 1998-2000, designed to enhance food security while protecting the natural resource base in the fragile environments of dry areas. It involved working together with our national partners and stakeholders; scientists, managers and the Board of Trustees of ICARDA; and members of the Technical Advisory Committee. Water is the key natural resource in the dry areas and is accorded the highest priority in ICARDA’s research; biodiversity and land as natural resources are all closely linked to water and its availability, and receive major research attention.
