Single source / Press release /copypaste[edit]

This article, as well as the 16 articles on CGIAR and its sub entities in the article's infobox, appear to have been copied directly from their websites, and are written like adverts. I've totally rewritten one, but most need to be removed and rewritten for copyvio alone, not to mention the fact that they are all incredibly POV.

If you're looking for a research project, here's a good one. I'm also removing the "start" tag from these articles, as an unreferenced copyvio doesn't meet "start" criteria. T L Miles (talk) 17:09, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
