Kenya joins the Global Research Alliance

The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) is pleased to announce Kenya as our newest member country. This now raises the total membership to 66 countries.

One of Kenya’s top research priority is Food and Nutrition Security. To achieve 100 percent food and nutrition security, the country intends to double agricultural production, reduce loses, enhance value addition, mitigate the effects of climate change and reverse micronutrient deficiency or hidden hunger. To attain this, Kenya strives to enhance international cooperation in research, collaboration and investment in both public and private research activities to improve knowledge sharing, access to and application of
science by farmers to mitigate carbon sequestration practices and technologies in enhancing productivity and resilience.

It is against this background that Kenya would like to become a member of the GRA, in order to contribute to and benefit from modern and cutting-edge agricultural research to help achieve their climate change objectives.

The 66 member countries now participating in the activities of the Global Research Alliance are: Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Benin, Bolivia, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Swaine, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Malawi, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Samoa, Senegal, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, United Kingdom, United States of America, Uruguay, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
