The announcement was made during the ninth Conference of the Parties (COP/MOP-9) in Egypt, during which the Institute highlighted the critical role that technologies play in consolidating the sustainable, comprehensive development of humanity, which is currently undergoing multiple, vertiginous changes.
The organizations will devise a framework agreement to facilitate joint initiatives in areas such as biotechnology, bioinputs, pollination and food production.
Starting today, delegates from 15 countries will share their country’s perspective at a meeting organized by IICA, in preparation for next month’s Conference of the Parties in Egypt.
This took place at a workshop at IICA’s Headquarters in San José, Costa Rica, which was organized by Crop Trust for the second time in a Latin America country.
This initiative is part of the Mexico-Caribbean-Central American Countries Technical Cooperation Program led by IICA and SAGARPA of Mexico.
An agreement between IICA and CropLife will foster the development of training programs and the dissemination of scientifically-founded knowledge, among other activities.
