GSR Review- Africa (Mozambique, Mali and Senegal) Feb26-Mar3, 2011

Between February 25 and March 3, 2011, the GSR project undertook the first review. The countries covered were Mozambique, Mali and Senegal. Meetings between the representatives of local NARES and commerical seed companies (for demonstration to local farmers) were arranged to strengthen the linkage between them and for better coordination.

In Mozambique, the delegation first visited the demonstration and seed production sites at XaiXai. The XaiXai site is managed by a Chinese private company,  Mozambique Lianfeng Agricultural Development Co. Ltd. Followed by Instituto de Investigacao Agraria de Mocambique, which is a Mozambique NARES.

The site in Mali was managed by the Institute of Rice, Jiangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences (China). The final destination of this trip was St Louis, Senegal, to visit the sites managed by Africa Rice Center.
