International Council for Research in Agroforestry: Annual Report, 1988 uri icon


  • The first thought that strikes me, looking for a single phrase to sum up 1988, is that this was probably ICRAF's last normal year, as we've become used to it over the past half-decade. Of course, the year saw its share of scientific progress, growth (particularly staff expansion and internal administrative restructuring), successes and of course some frustrations. Growth and progress have been normal conditions at ICRAF for some time. But 1988 saw no organization-wide changes comparable to the new programme of work and restructuring of 1986, the tenth anniversary and move to the newly built ICRAF House headquarters in 1987, or indeed to what lies ahead for us in 1989 and 1990. It was a year not of revolutions but of steadily measured advance
