First Avenue International in collaboration with Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) Biotechnology and Nuclear Agriculture Research Institute (BNARI), National Tropical Botanical Garden, Global Breadfruit, Agrivida Support and Government of Ghana (GoG) is organizing an informational and awareness workshop on the breadfruit plant for Stakeholders on June 9th, 2017 at the University of Ghana-Atomic Campus, Conference Hall in the School of Allied and Nuclear Sciences, Accra. The program will start at 10:00am and close by 5:00pm.
To date, the Africa Breadfruit Initiative has provided over 3,000 seedlings to partners in Ghana. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss best practices for agricultural productivity, highlight ongoing market efforts in the region and analyze economic possibilities of breadfruit for Ghana. The workshop will also serve as a platform to solicit inputs and feedback from local stakeholders as well as catalyze the formation of an in-country working group to ensure effective implementation of the initiative.
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided for all participants at no cost. Participants are responsible for their travel, accommodations and any salary loss unless otherwise pre-arranged. We strongly believe in the potential of breadfruit to combat food insecurity and provide diversified economic possibilities in Africa and other developing regions in the world. We hope that you will join us in our efforts and participate in this workshop.
