By G. J. Persley

"Banana and plantain are the fourth most crucial international meals crop and export commodity. Their construction offers an essential resource of source of revenue for farmers in constructing nations via neighborhood and overseas trade." learn tasks, funded by way of the area financial institution and its companions for the Banana development undertaking (BIP), have ended in intriguing discoveries, contributed huge necessary new wisdom, and confirmed powerful collaboration and linkages that might proceed into the longer term. This ebook is a distillation of all the documentation, highlighting the $64000 results and affects of the examine funded via BIP. BIP funded 18 study tasks in 4 large technical parts, biotechnology, germplasm assortment and characterization, plant development, and pest and disorder administration. It had major ambitions: 1. To boost and assessment superior banana kinds with export capability, which might comprise elevated productiveness and sturdy disorder resistance via traditional and nonconventional breeding concepts. 2. To enhance extra effective and built-in affliction administration practices.

BIP has therefore made an important contribution in both the provision of research results, catalyzing collaborative activities and initiating an internationally competitive research grants scheme. This enabled the inclusion of research providers of excellent quality wordlwide, and the investment of resources in a portfolio of research projects of direct relevance to the objectives of the program. The Page 7 World Bank's overarching commitment is to the alleviation of poverty. The contribution this Project has made toward the development of new banana varieties, and more sustainable methods of disease an pest control in banana and plantain production, is a positive step in reaching this goal.

This helped establish new and productive external collaborative and networking opportunities. The Fourth Cosponsors and Third Scientific Meetings were held in Douala, Cameroon, on November 56, 1998, followed by a field trip to the CRBP facilities in Njombe. The meeting was timed to coincide with the impending completion of project activities. As in previous years, the meeting venue was selected to take advantage of the presence of Musa researchers and the development community who were participating in a ProMusa Workshop and International Seminar sponsored by INIBAP, CIRAD, and CRBP immediately following the BIP meetings.
