We are pleased to send you the October issue of the GFAR Update!
The 2016 Partners’ Assembly of the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) has decided to create a new Steering Committee for GFAR, one that is representative of all sectors, and which truly reflects the diversity of stakeholders in agricultural research and innovation around the world.
Next week, we will ask the Partners in GFAR to identify who, from among the Partners in GFAR from their sector, they wish to have represent their perspectives and interests in the new Steering Committee, the body that sets and drives the agenda for GFAR each year.
We look forward to your participation and involvement in this unique global forum. There is still time for nominations!
If you wish to be nominated, or to nominate another organization, to represent your interests and concerns, it is necessary for your organization to first be registered as a Partner in GFAR.

GFAR is an open and inclusive movement for change, open to all who share in our common purpose of advocating for, and catalyzing Collective Actions to strengthen and transform agri-food research and innovation systems, so that they are more effective in sustainable development. GFAR Update is a briefing service from the GFAR Secretariat. Our aim is to keep you regularly informed and aware of new initiatives and collective actions of the Partners in GFAR around the world, so that these can have greater reach and impact for those we serve - in particular small farmers and producers.
