This book is a result of a workshop held at ICARDA, Aleppo, Syria in Nov 1992, organized jointly by ICARDA and ICRISAT, in which researchers from 11 important chickpea-growing countries in West Asia and North Africa (WANA) participated. The book outlines the mandates of ICARDA in the WANA region, and ICRISAT in the semiarid tropics (SAT) as they relate to chickpea improvement. The current status of chickpea production, and constraints and opportunities in WANA countries are discussed using maps developed on a geographic information system. Regional overviews summarize current knowledge on chickpea in West Asia, North Africa, and the Nile Valley countries, and overviews of biotic, abiotic. and socioeconomic constraints integrate this information Hcross WANA and SAT. The final chapter is an overall synthesis, with suggested priorities and future areas of research to enhance and stabilize chickpea yield.

Acknowledgement: The book 'Adaptation of chickpea in the West Asia and North Africa region' is the result of a collaborative project that brought together scientists from ICRISAT, ICARDA, and 11 important chickpea-growing countries in the West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region. The aim of the project was to analyze constraints to chickpea production in WANA and other regions, identify common problems, and discuss possible solutions in order to achieve sustainable increases in chickpea productivity. The project helped to evolve an effective synthesis of research challenges and opportunities through a closer integration of regional and global activities.
