1984-11 Washington DC USA


Nov 1984, Washington DC (USA), by a group of donor countries and organizations. Established as an autonomous organization under the auspices of E-XE4468 - CGIAR System Organization (CGIAR) by an agreement of 27 Oct 1988, Paris (France), which entered into force 25 Aug 1990. Mid-term meeting of CGIAR, 1993, San Juan (Puerto Rico), decided that INIBAP should come under the governance and administration of International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI), and a memorandum of understanding to this effect was signed by the Chairman of INIBAP, the Board of Trustees of IPGRI and the Chairman of INIBAP Donor Support Group during CGIAR mid-term meeting, 1994, Delhi (India). The memorandum specifies that INIBAP retains its name and programme identity as an international network and retains its office in Montpellier (France). Ceased to exist when integration process into IPGRI was completed and both organizations adopted a new name: H-XE3150 - Bioversity International, 2006.
