Stay informed about agricultural research and innovation
As you are aware, on May 25th the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect, which enforced one set of data protection rules for all companies and organizations operating in the EU, wherever they are based.
Now GFAR Secretariat would like to ask you to help us ensure that the whole GFAR Community will continue receiving these updates. Please circulate THIS LINK to people and organizations in your networks to encourage them to subscribe or re-subscribe to the GFAR Updates.
This is especially important now as GFAR Secretariat is embarking on a collaboration with Impakter, a cutting-edge magazine dedicated to delivering high-quality online media that draw links between sustainable development practices and current global events. Impakter will be working with GFAR Secretariat to showcase the valuable work done by Partners in GFAR to transform agricultural research and innovation systems.
All Partners in GFAR can submit written contributions on a key topics related to their work with GFAR and which involve other partners, enabling the public at large to engage with and reflect more deeply upon the value of their work. The articles and blogs will be featured on the Impakter website (https://impakter.com), to bring visibility through Impakter's global network.
A new GFAR newsletter — “GFAR Impakters” — will also feature these written contributions, helping raise awareness of Partners' work within the agriculture community. GFAR Impakters will also improve learning from partnership processes and practical collective actions, a cross-cutting outcome that improves GFAR's capacity for monitoring and evaluation of our impacts.
The GFAR Update as you are receiving it here will continue to be issued on a monthly basis, focusing on Collective Actions being taken forward and news from the GFAR Secretariat. We are pleased that you have already given your consent to receive these mailings. GFAR Secretariat assumes that this consent also extends to receipt of the GFAR Impakters newsletter, unless we hear from you to the contrary at GFAR-Secretariat[at]fao[dot]org.
Thank you and best wishes from GFAR Secretariat!
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. Please let the GFAR Secretariat know how you work with other Partners to help shape the future of agriculture, so that we can share your stories with everyone in our networks!
