The U.S. Department of Agriculture is now accepting applications for the 2017 Borlaug Global Research Alliance Fellowships. Fellows selected from eligible countries (Colombia, Costa Rica, Egypt, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam) will work with a mentor at USDA’s Agricultural Research Service or a United States university for up to 12 weeks on resilient agricultural research. The United States’ mentor will later visit the fellow’s home institution to continue collaboration.

The fellowships are designed to provide fellows with training opportunities and practical experience, increase collaboration and networking, and aid in the transfer and implementation of technologies in the area of climate change mitigation research in agriculture.

The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) is extending a cordial invitation to participate in the Webinar LAMNET Webinar series: Global and regional emissions estimates for N2O — from top-down and bottom-up.

The International Centre for tropical Agriculture (CIAT), CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and Latin American Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Network (LAMNET) invite you to a webinar on top-down and bottom-up approaches to estimate N2O emissions, with a focus on soil.

Global and regional nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions have been increasing rapidly,  especially between 1995 and 2008. In particular, Asia’s agriculture has been significantly increasing its output of N2O into the atmosphere. In her presentation, Dr. Saikawa will discuss the various modelling approaches she has used in her research to observe this rise.

Speaker: Dra. Eri Saikawa is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Emory College of Arts and Sciences and at the Department of Environmental Health in the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. The webinar will be presented in English with real-time Spanish translation.
