International Service for National Agricultural Research (ISNAR)
In 1998, the International Service for National Agricultural Research (ISNAR) conducted a biotechnology research indicator survey of four national agricultural research systems in Mexico, Kenya, Indonesia, and Zimbabwe. Some of the policy recommendations proposed to overcome the identified limitations in conducting biotechnology research include: an increase of investment levels in agricultural biotechnology, the promotion of the private sector’s involvement, and the development of a comprehensive strategy.
Key words: Research indicators; biotechnology; developing countries.
