TAC Members

2020 TAC meeting (videoconference)

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was established in 1977 to provide technical assessment and support for the Center's work programs. It is made up of leading scientists and policy makers in the Asian and Pacific Region.

The TAC meets every two years in each of the member countries in turn. TAC members review the Center's work programs, discuss their impact on the region's agriculture, and suggest how the Center might improve the effectiveness of its work programs.
