As April draws to a close, take a few minutes and have a look at this round-up of news, events, blog posts and opportunities showing the truly diverse range of Partners in GFAR!
We'd like to highlight one opportunity that's particularly important for GFAR, as members of our renewed Steering Committee begin engaging their constituencies to define and take forward key collective actions. GFAR is currently seeking candidates for a Chairperson, a dynamic leader for our unique multi-stakeholder global forum on agricultural research and innovation. If you are interested in applying for this distinguished role, or would like to nominate a qualified candidate, please view the full announcement here. Nominations or Applications with Curriculum Vitae should be submitted no later than Friday, 5 May 2017 to the GFAR Search Committee Chair.
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 for poor smallholder farmers and consumers.
