Hola from the Scriptoria team at GCARD2!

Scriptoria is in Punta del Este in Uruguay this week for the second Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD2). The team will be at booth B17 in the marketplace, promoting Scriptoria’s communications expertise in the field of agriculture.

Organised by the Global Forum for Agricultural Research (GFAR) in partnership with the CGIAR, the conference will run from 29th October until 1st November. Over 600 delegates from around the world are expected to attend the various seminars, debates and sessions, including a field trip to visit local Uruguayan farmers.

GCARD aims to develop a new global agricultural research system – one which is driven by tangible development goals and brings together all those involved in agricultural research for development (AR4D).

The focus of GCARD2 is the GCARD RoadMap. This was drawn up at GCARD1 in 2010, and sets out a six-point plan for transforming agricultural research for development around the world. Delegates at this year’s conference will be looking at the progress made so far against this plan, and staking out the best path forward.

If you’re attending the conference, don’t forget to come and say hello to the Scriptoria team at booth B17!
