Abstract

Measuring the development of national agricultural research systems 571 MEASURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH SYSTEMS Johannes ROSEBOOM* Philip G. PARDEY** *research associate, ISNAR, The Hague, Netherlands. **Senior Research Officer, ISNAR, and Assistant Professor, Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, University of Minnesota, St. Paul., USA. ABSTRACT Agricultural research is facing new and renewed demands to generate the knowledge and technologies required to sustain productivity growth in agriculture in order to feed and clothe a burgeoning world population. In addition, the increased political awareness of the environmental impacts of agricultural production practices is placing still further demands on national agricultural research systems (NARS) to address such issues. Access to reliable statistics on the state of NARS on a global scale is a prerequisite for sound analysis and informed policy debate. Careful measurement begets reliable statistics. It is Our purpose in this paper to describe the on-going efforts at the International Service for National Agricultural Research (ISNAR) to compile and maintain a set of global indicators of NARS in both the more- and less-developed countries. RESUME La recherche agricole doit faire face à de nouvelles et pressantes demandes. pour générer des connaissances et des technologies susceptibles de maintenir la croissance de la productivité en agriculture afin de noumir une population mondiale croissante. De plus, une attention politique croissante quant aux impacts des pratiques agricoles sur l’environnement implique une attente renouvellée sur les systèmes nationaux de recherche agricole (SNRA) pour répndre à ces préoccupations. L’accès à des statistiques fiables sur l’état des SNRA est un préalable aux analyses et aux débats sur les politiques à mener. L’objectif de cet article
