Although ICARDA has had linkages with the Central Asian republics for a long time, through exchange of gennplasm and scientific visits, the Center's first scientific mission to the region visited Kazakstan in 1987, and laid. the foundation for increased collaboration.
After a scientific mission to the region by ICARDA scientists in May 1995, the Center took the initiative of organizing a workshop, Identification of Needs for Agricultural Research and Seed Production for the Newly Independent Republics of Central and West Asia, in collaboration with GTZ/BMZ (Gennan Assistance Agency/Gennan Ministry of Technical Cooperation) and the Uzbekistan Academy of Agricultural Sciences. The workshop took place between 5 and 9 December 1995, in Tashkent.
The following material discussed the partnerships between ICARDA and Central Asian countries.
