GREAT Begins on Strong Foot with Inception and Curriculum Planning Meetings in Feb 2016

In early February 2016, GREAT held its inception meeting and theme 1 course planning meeting in Kampala, Uganda, bringing together gender and breeding experts from around the world to launch the project. The meetings marked the first international convening of GREAT since Cornell and Makerere Universities were awarded a $5M grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to begin the project, which equips researchers to create more inclusive and effective agricultural systems by addressing the priorities of both women and men in sub-Saharan Africa.
