The primary objective of the Workshop was to bring together representatives of governments, especially senior policy makers and managers of the public sector national agricultural research systems and institutes, civil society and farmer organizations to foster discussions on the new roles and needs of emerging economies so that they can, through collaboration and partnership contribute further to agricultural research for development globally. The outputs from the Workshop will be recommendations to be considered at the Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD 2010), which will take place in 28-31 March 2010, in Montpellier, France.
