Welcoming our new Partner – FONTAGRO
The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases is pleased to welcome FONTAGRO (Fondo Regional de Tecnología Agropecuaria / Regional Fund for Agricultural Technology) as a new Partner.
The decision for partnership was decided at the Council meeting held last week (10-13 October 2016) in Mexico City.
FONTAGRO is a unique mechanism of regional cooperation that promotes family farming innovation, competitiveness and food security. Recently FONTAGRO has established a new mission to contribute to innovation in family farming, in order to promote food security in a framework of equity and sustainability. Part of its strategic lines include adaptation and mitigation of climate change as a central theme.
We look forward to working together with FONTAGRO in the research, development and extension of technologies and practices that will help deliver ways to grow more food (and more climate-resilient food systems) without growing greenhouse gas emissions.
