Global Banana Expert Workshop starts today

Today (actually, in these minutes) starts the Global Banana Expert Workshop, which for the next four days brings together more than 40 banana experts from advanced research institutions and leading banana producing countries. The experts will work in multidisciplinary groups to work on the priorization of production constraints and options for international research in bananas and plantains. They will estimate yield gaps and estimate parameters for the later use in impact assessment models.

The event is co-hosted by NARO, Bioversity International and IITA. It takes place in Kampala, Uganda and is part of the ongoing priority setting exercise of the CGIAR Research Program on Roots, Tubers and Bananas (CRP RTB). What makes this event special, is the continued involvement of the online community. Throughout the workshop, outcomes will be posted on an eForum and comments from the community will be fed back into the discussions.
