Invitation for a Discussion Group on “Metrics and indicators in agricultural science” in IGAD Pre-meeting

14 Nov 2016

Dear All,

Following up on Imma Subirat’s post on October 17th, I would like to invite those who are interested in joining the discussion group on “Metrics and indicators in agricultural science” in IGAD Pre-meeting on 3-4 April 2017 in Barcelona. I will be co-chairing the group discussion together with Hugo Besemer from Wageningen University.

The discussions will cover the current status, identify challenges and develop proposals to offer better solutions on scientific tools, measures and indicators in food and agricultural sciences. 

The objective of these discussions is whether to set up a Metrics in Agricultural Sciences Working Group in IGAD of RDA. The deliverables will be discussed, but a possible outcome can be a state of art paper covering current status, challenges and proposals to offer better solutions on scientific tools, measures, indicators within the relevant fields.

I would kindly ask you to e-mail me at Ilkay.Holt@fao.org if you would like to be part of the discussion group. Earlier notification of interest is recommended to have a better communication on the subject.

With kind regards,

Ilkay Holt
