Bank, T. W. (n.d.). The Cgiar at 31 : An Meta-Evaluation of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research. Retrieved from


But evaluations have been few and far between at the level of the System as whole. The Third System Review (TSR) was completed in 1998, 17 years after the previous System-level review. System-level reviews have been managed by the CGIAR Secretariat and reported to the CGIAR Chairman. The TSR, carried out by a distinguished panel headed by Maurice Strong, drew from internal experts intimately knowledgeable about the CGIAR and from outsiders bringing fresh scientific and strategic perspectives. Yet it engendered little ownership from the membership and had little impact on the System. A few System-level reviews have been undertaken by specific donors, such as Anderson and Dalrymple (1999) for the World Bank. Other donors, such as Denmark and IFAD, have also undertaken reviews of their own involvement in the CGIAR. In view of the CGIAR?s history of limited System-level reviews, the former Director-General of OED, Robert Picciotto, proposed an external independent ?blue ribbon? commission appointed by the World Bank President to evaluate the CGIAR. The proposal was not taken up because the CGIAR had shown little receptivity to past Systemlevel external reviews and had just initiated a Change Design and Management Process (CDMP). Therefore, given the number of previous evaluations and its own limited resources, OED determined that a meta-evaluation would most effectively assess CGIAR performance and inform OED?s overall review of the Bank?s involvement in global programs.
