English term or phrase: that it arose
The accompanying draft WHO research strategy noted that it arose from a request from the World Health Assembly for the Director-General to produce a strategy for “the management and organization of research activities within WHO” – i.e. also principally an inward-looking perspective.

Does "it" refer to "to produce"?

Is "in" missing at the beginning of this sentence?

Thank you for your help!

This too is more technically correct and just better expressed. Much more easy to understand.
