Cameroon joins the GRA!

The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) is pleased to announce Cameroon as our newest member country. Cameroon has become the 57th member of the GRA, and the thirteenth African country to have joined the Alliance.

In March Cameroon participated in the GRA-organised  West African Regional Workshop on Low Emissions Livestock  in Dakar, Senegal. The purpose of the workshop was to improve national and regional understanding of the role of livestock in climate change as well as opportunities and challenges associated with low emission livestock.

Agricultural PhD students from Cameroon have also participated in the CLIFF-GRADS programme, a joint initiative of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change (CCAFS) low emissions development flagship and the GRA, which aims to build the capability of early career agricultural students in developing countries to conduct applied research on climate change mitigation in agriculture.
