Abstract: 

This publication presents the results of a meeting held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 21 - 23 August 1989, whose primary objective was to examine the formation of network to support research and development activities for small ruminants in national agricultural systems and collaborative research programmes in Asia. There was consensus that a single network should be established for small ruminants in Asia whose name should be Small Ruminant Production Systems Network for Asia (SRUPNA). It was also agreed to establish a centralised information facility called Asian Small Ruminant Information Centre (ASRIC) to be based in the Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute (CSWRI) in Avikanagar, India. A three man Steering Committee was appointed to determine the location of the coordination unit to pursue the objectives, as well as future activities of SRUPNA and ASRIC.
