Participants in the AARINENA Executive Committee Meeting

ICARDA’s Director General, Dr Mahmoud Solh, attended the Executive Committee Meeting of AARINENA (Association of Agricultural Research Institutions in the Near East and North Africa) in Kuwait City, 12-13 September 2011. The Executive Committee discussed the AARINENA workplan for 2011-2012, the GCARD (Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development) road map, and the program for the 12th AARINENA General Conference.  The workplan is based on the outputs of the AARINENA “retreat”, hosted by ICARDA in November 2010, and on the post-GCARD road map developed by the Global Forum for Agricultural Research (see http://www.egfar.org/egfar/website/gcard).  It was also proposed that AARINENA focus on common challenges in the region, such as water scarcity.

The Committee also discussed the program for the International conference on adaptation to climate change in agriculture in West Asia and North Africa, to be held on 13-16 November 2011, co-sponsored by AARINENA and ICARDA, in collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization and other partners.
