Summary: After decades of neglect, the agricultural sector in many countries of Latin America is receiving renewed attention. As part of this, the establishment and consolidation in Latin America of three international centers funded through the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) account for a small but significant part of the growth in agricultural research. The importance of the centers lies not in the additional funding they bring, but rather in their collaboration with national research programs. There is increasing evidence that these centers have helped to expand the capacity of many national programs, especially in the numerous smaller countries. Their sustained funding, apolitical nature and international scientific linkages have added an important dimension to the region's own enhanced capacity for agricultural research. The accelerated growth in the yields and output of staple foods in Latin America achieved over the past decade is striking testimony to the strengthened national research programs which are receiving, testing, adapting and releasing technologies developed through their collaboration with international centers.
