Toward Sustainability A Plan for Collaborative Research on Agriculture and Natural Resource Management by NRC pdf free download. In response to growing support for sustainable international development strategies, the U.S. Congress has recommended that the Agency for International Development (AID) create a new Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP) that focuses on the research needs of sustainable agriculture and natural resource management. The Office of Agriculture in AID’s Bureau for Science and Technology subsequently asked that the National Research Council’s Board on Agriculture (BA) and Board on Science and Technology for International Development (BOSTID) undertake planning for the new CRSP. Collaborative research support programs were created under Title XII of the International Development and Food Assistance Act of 1975, which supports long-term agricultural research of benefit to developing countries and the United States.

These programs are the primary mechanisms through which U.S. universities conduct such research. Currently eight CRSPs are conducting research on several important crops, livestock, soils, fisheries, aquaculture, and human nutrition. The charge to the National Research Council’s Panel for Collaborative Research Support for AID’s Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Management Program was to: (1) recommend a design for the new CRSP; (2) help AID define research priorities for the new CRSP; and (3) suggest management arrangements for administering the CRSP that will enable it to draw on and contribute to all of AID’s agricultural, environmental, and rural development activities.

The Panel for Collaborative Research Support for AID’s Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Management Program has focused on the need to promote integrated, multidisciplinary research across agroecological zones, among departments and institutions of U.S. universities, and in collaboration with other institutions, research institutes, national agricultural research systems, and the international agricultural research centers. Its principal objectives have been to foster a truly collaborative and participatory approach to the design of research and to involve the ultimate beneficiary of the research: the small-scale farmer and rural and urban poor in developing countries. From its inception, the panel has emphasized the need to draw on and actively engage incountry expertise and indigenous knowledge and practices in meeting its objective.
