Contribute to shaping the future of agriculture!
Its time to register for the GCARD 2010 regional e-consultations
Join the regional electronic consultations happening now! The consultations give you an opportunity to debate and build on from the reviews of current policies and research needs identified in your region, and to put forward your point of view.
Each region will be discussing the answers to questions such as:
• What agricultural research does your region need to lessen poverty and boost development?
Check the available regional reviews at: http://gcardblog.wordpress.com/2009/08/28/check-now-dates-and-background-readings-for-regional-e-consultations/
The electronic consultations will be open to everyone. Depending on the region, they will be in English, French, Russian or Spanish. You can join in the consultation in your region by registering through the links listed below. Summaries of consultations in the other regions will be posted twice a week so that you can follow these too. Your contribution could lead to an invitation to come to Montpellier in March 2010 to take part in GCARD in person.
