CIRCASA project

CIRCASA 1st Annual meeting - February 2019, Cali

The first General Assembly of CIRCASA project was held in Cali, Colombia at El Centro Internacional Agricultura Tropica (CIAT) on the 6th and 8th February 2019. During the meeting, organized side-by-side with the GRA- Integrative Research Group (IRG) meeting, CIRCASA members had the opportunity to gather the project findings, results and to discuss the next steps to take for the Consortium.

The first session was dedicated to future links between CIRCASA-IRG projects. The examples that were discussed include FONTAGRO PROCISUR, the agri-Benchmark network, a Brazilian Embrapa greenhouse gas related public policies presentation and an IIASA project modelling climate mitigation strategies:
