Twenty-one members of the CoDI partners: BAIF Development Research Foundation, Center for Agrarian Systems Research and Development, Fruit and Vegetable Research Institute, Winrock International India and the International Centre for Underutilised Crops met 13-15 August 2008 for a project inception workshop. The workshop was an opportunity to brief participants on activities since the actual project start on 1 July, to plan for the year ahead, to get to know members who were unable to participate in the proposal preparation workshop in January, and to obtain clarification on any pending issues. The workshop was split into three sessions: the internal management team meeting 13-14 August (section 1 and 2), the open day inception ceremony on 15 August (section 3), and the field visit on 16 August (section 3). This report details the activities and discussions in the workshop
