The Cereals and Legumes Asia Network (CLAN) was formed in 1992 by merging the erstwhile Asian Grain Legumes Network (AGLN) and the Cooperative Cereals Research Network (CCRN). CLAN’s overall goal is to improve the well-being of Asian farmers and consumers by improving the productivity and sustainable production of sorghum, pearl millet, chickpea, pigeonpea and groundnut. The sixth CLAN Steering Committee Meeting held in December 1999, marked the termination of the 12-year period of funding support from the Asian Development Bank. At that meeting, member countries agreed to continue network research and development activities with funding from national programs. APAARI and ICRISAT were requested to provide support funding for coordination, capacity building and exchange of genetic materials and information. APAARI has provided limited funding support, augmenting ICRISAT’s contribution, which is derived both from core funding and from bilateral and multilateral projects.
