Safary Park Hotel Nairobi, Kenya + Google Map

The Gender and Breeding Working Group of the CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network announces a Gender, Breeding and Genomics workshop Workshop Goal The goal is to increase the relevance and benefits of plant and animal breeding to poor rural women producers in low-income countries, especially Africa. To this end, the workshop is designed to produce a synthesis of past success and promising novel approaches for incorporating gender considerations into the development of improved crop varieties and animal breeds. The workshop aims to…

Quinoa-Conference-2016-Final-Announcement December 6-8, 2016 Dubai, UAE The global population is expected to increase to 9.7 billion in 2050 and there are concerns about the capacity of agriculture to produce enough food for the growing population. By some estimates, food production will need to go up by about 60 percent either through increase in crop yields per unit area or expansion in the arable land by 2050 to meet the demand (World Population Prospects-the 2008 Revision, UN, 2009). Furthermore, several regions…

Drought is weather-related natural disaster, which affects vast regions for months or years and has impact on food production. Drought is related to a deficiency of precipitation over a season or an extended period of time. The most immediate consequence is a fall in crop production, due to inadequate and poorly distributed rainfall. Given the severity of drought, a central challenge for researchers and policy makers is to device technologies that lend greater resilience to agricultural production under this stress.…

Global Symposium on Soil Organic Carbon

March 21 @ 8:00 am - March 23 @ 5:00 pm
FAO Headquarters, Rome, Italy, FAO headquarters
Rome, 00153 Italy

Soils constitute the largest store of terrestrial carbon. When managed using Sustainable Soil Management (SSM) techniques, soils can play an important role in climate change adaptation and mitigation and enhance the provision of ecosystem services by storing carbon (carbon sequestration) and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. The Global Symposium on Soil Organic Carbon (GSOC17) will see 300-500 participants contribute to the efforts of ending hunger and malnutrition, climate change adaptation, reversing land degradation, and overall sustainable development while…
