Office of Technical Review and Information Division of Publications and Information


INTRODUCTION This Director is produced by the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID), Bureau for Science and Technology, Office of Technical Review and Information, Publications and Information Division (S&T/TRI/PI), to provide, in simple form, a multisector listing of development-oriented resources both in the United States and abroad. These resources include dita bases, information clearinghouses, newsletters an6 journals, technical support services, and field research facilities, which are available to development workers in more than one country; each project or institution described provides at least two of these services. This publication is divided into two major sections: International, Regional, and National Organizations and U.S.-Based, AID-Funded Services. The U.S.-based services included are carried out by U.S. institutions under contract to the Agency for International Development. Services listed for any U.S. institution are not inclusive of that institution's capabilities; the descriptions are of services offered through AID-funded projects only. This Directory lists only those private voluntary organizations (PVOs) working on AID-funded projects. International, regional, and national institu'tions outside the United States were recommended by AID missions. Newsletters, journals, and data bases are listed at the end of the book. The profiles of both the U.S. and non-U.S. institutions are based as closely as possible on the descriptions proviced by the institutions themselves. Except for making minor editorial changes, the compiler has not attempted to interpret any remarks made by the institutions that submitted completed descriptions. AID aelcomes any comments on the format and content of the Directory. comments or requests for additional copies should be sent to: Earle Lawrence, Project Officer Directory of Development Resources S&T/TRI/PI, Room 209, SA-18 U.S. Agency for International Development Washington, DC 20523 U.S.A.

An Academic Consultative Committee serves as an advising group to SEARCA composed of the Chancellor, the Vice Chancellor, and the Deans of the different units of the University of the Philippines at Los Banos (UPLB). Under the Center's visiting professors program, an international visiting professorial staff is created with an average core staff of about nine to twelve scientists.
