Scope and content
When IRRI was founded in the 1960s, with headquarters in Manila, its mandate was to improve the productivity of the rice farmers, especially in the poor parts of Asia. While it was outstand-ingly successful, by the late 1980s serious management problems had arisen. In 1988 Dr. Solandt was invited to participate in a review of the Institute.
His summary of his activities, the correspondence, panel discussions, and the drafts of reports in this series document the issues that were investigated and the recommendations that were made.
