  • 10. IMPACT OF CAPACITY BUILDING (MUK-CIAT)• CIAT is a link that allows universities to translate research into development impact – Segregating populations developed by students through MAB are advanced by in-coming students (new projects) – Advanced lines are produced and distributed through CIAT’s regional nurseries network to NARS – Two root rot varieties released in 2006-NAACRI – Publications draw international interest for more donor funding and new partnerships, e.g., USDA, BBSRC-UK projects based on root rot research – Increased capacity in Universities, and NARS
