The first World Conference on environmental issues, held in Stockholm, in 1972, lead to the creation of the Environmental Programme of the United Nations. J. Morales time. However, this report did not share the radical views of the “Green Party”, but, rather, advocated a “sustainable development” approach. In 1991, a special fund was created for environmental studies with support from the World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme, and the UN Environmental Programme. This development prompted the incorporation of more IARCs to the CG System, specifically IARCs that were already working in the area of natural resource management:: agroforestry, aquatic resources, and forest management.

As to the goal of fostering “partnerships among a wide range of institutions in order to deliver products”, it is difficult for institutions suffering a continuous erosion of their operational budgets, particularly due to the deviation of funds from their core budgets to finance special projects (including the CPs), not to view these undertakings as yet another series of “competitive projects”. THE GLOBALISATION OF THE ECONOMY The spectacular progress and lower costs achieved in the area of information and communication technologies, has brought the nations of the world closer and facilitated international trade.

Morales the “team spirit” gradually disappeared. Successful scientists were given considerable freedom to accept projects that may have never been part of the original research agenda. Once a scientist secured enough operational funds, he or she could work quite independently. Thus, the responsibility of searching for operational funds, shifted from administrators to scientists, who soon found themselves doing both jobs; securing the funds and executing the work. Obviously, this new system greatly decreased the productivity of scientists, who soon found themselves spending a considerable amount of time making contacts, writing project proposals, and, if they were successful, writing technical progress and annual reports for both the donors and their own institutions.
