Joint EASAC-NASAC Workshop on "Planting the Future" | 12.12.12

The networks of the European and African National Academies of Science - EASAC and NASAC - held a joint Workshop on 20 November 2012 in Addis Ababa, at the African Union Commission. The purpose of the workshop was to enter into a dialogue between European and African scientists working on the improvement of plants for environmental sustainability and food security. The full-day workshop took place as part of a four-day conference organized by ATPS (African Technology Policy Studies), which aimed at bringing together scientists and policy-makers on topical issues related to sustainable development for Africa. The results of the discussion of the workshop will form part of the upcoming EASAC report on "Planting the Future", which will be published in early summer 2013.
