Summary: This report describes a study of the collaboration between international agricultural research centers and the national agricultural research system of Cuba, a project that was conducted by the authors as part of the worldwide Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) impact study. Collaboration between the Ministry of Agriculture (MINAG) and the CGIAR system started with the International Agricultural Research Center for Rice (IRRI) in 1967, with the International Center of Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in 1977, with the International Potato Center (CIP) in 1981 and with the International Center for the Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT) in 1982. Germplasm exchange, training and visits are the main activities. Collaboration is considered mature with IRRI and CIAT on rice, and with CIAT on beans, cassava and pastures. Collaboration is considered developing with CIP on potatoes and CIMMYT on maize, and incipient with the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) on sorghum, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) on malanga and CIP on sweet potatoes. CIAT has built up an extensive system of contacts in Cuba in all four of its programs. It also facilitates the operations of other CGIAR institutes.
