Strategic Assessment of Research Priorities in Cassava: Latin America Stakeholders Workshop

Priority setting in cassava

Priority setting in cassava

The CGIAR Research Program on Roots, Tubers, and Bananas (CRP-RTB) is conducting a Strategic Assessment of Research Priorities to identify which research options are expected to yield the highest impacts on welfare, poverty, food security, human nutrition and health, gender  equity and environmental sustainability. This strategy involves a dynamic, systematic approach of continual revision and updating of research priorities. The objective is to engage scientists and stakeholders from the RTB community in a dialogue to increase the relevance and enhance the impacts of RTB research.

The stakeholders’ workshop that will be held the 3-4th of April will be an opportunity to “validate” the results of the initial activities of the project. This will be a process of bringing together diverse types of information from the key actors in the value chain, so that the stakeholders can advise on priority – setting for future research agendas

Stakeholders include all parties involved with any of the stages of the cassava value chain. In the workshop, participants will come from: R&D from the NARs, government employees from institutions dedicated to agriculture production and promotion, Vice-Ministry of agriculture, national science and technology institutions, universities, non-governmental organizations, biofuel companies, chip companies, cassava processors and production chambers, associations and unions.

One response to DAPA’s Achievements and Publications in 2014

  • alfonso antonio barragan bustamante says:

    Estas estrategias hay que divulgarlas me manera practica, con la descripción metodológica para que los pequeños productores de arroz y otros productos la puedan adquirir y aplicar. gran mayoría de productores pequeños no están cobijados por FEDEARROZ, esto para el caso de Colombia, por tal motivo hay que buscar otros medios y organizaciones que contribuyan a divulgar la estrategia.
