Sustainable development in IraqNovember 10, 2009 at 10:39 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
ICARDA will play a key role in linking research outputs to a new development project for Iraq, being launched by the World Food Program. The project concept note, and a preliminary framework for implementation, were agreed upon at a meeting held earlier this month at ICARDA’s regional office in Amman, Jordan. The proposed project would target around 30,000 farm households in eight governorates across the country, introducing and disseminating new technologies for crop and livestock production, and more sustainable use of natural resources. ICARDA will work with national research agencies to provide technical support, building on technologies it has already developed for dry areas, and its long experience in Iraq.
