However, this report did not share the radical views of the “Green Party”, but, rather, advocated a “sustainable development” approach. In 1991, a special fund was created for environmental studies with support from the World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme, and the UN Environmental Programme. This development prompted the incorporation of more IARCs to the CG System, specifically IARCs that were already working in the area of natural resource management:: agroforestry, aquatic resources, and forest management.

In the early stages of their history, the CG centres were highly transparent, accountable, and productive given their relatively low operational budgets. The “projectisation” of international agricultural research has actually increased the total funds currently spent by most CG centres, and, yet, their economic situation constantly borders bankruptcy because IARCs end up subsidising most special projects. More important, the contribution of these disbursed, short-term special projects to the alleviation of hunger and poverty is practically nil, due to the different interests of donors and lack of coordination among projects at all levels of their implementation.

In fact, most scientists recognise that the early plant transformation technologies were rather crude and risky. The negative perception of GMOs has not gone away despite notable advances in the area of plant transformation, which render GMOs as safe as any cultivar improved by traditional plant breeding methods (Persley and Doyle, 2001; Pinstrup-Andersen, 2001). Nevertheless, biotechnology has survived various “pogroms” launched against agricultural sciences in the last decades, because of the considerable potential benefits that this technology holds for humanity at large, not only in the field of agriculture but in the medical sciences as well.
