  • Workshop Report:

    Strategic Planning Workshop on

    Recovering Banana Production

    in BBTD Affected Areas: Community & Farm

    Household Approaches

    Bujumbura, Burundi

    20-25 January 2014

  • About the CGIAR Research Program on Roots, Tubers and Bananas (CRP-RTB)

    Within the new structure of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), new defined Research Programs should bring together the research synergies, strengths, and resources from multiple centers to increase efficiencies and enhance impacts in achieving global development goals. The Roots, Tubers, and Bananas Research Program (RTB Research Program) is one of these initiatives; it is led by the International Potato Center (CIP) together with its sister centers Bioversity International, International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), and the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

    About the workshop

    This workshop is part of the CRP-RTB complimentary project Banana Bunchy Top Disease Containment and Recovery in Sub-Saharan Africa: Building Capacity and Piloting Field Recovery Approaches through a Learning Alliance with the purpose of bringing together scientists from different disciplines to develop country specific action plans to control BBTD in the eight pilot sites in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The workshop also intended to serve as platform for information sharing and update latest research available to better understand BBTD epidemiology and innovations to control BBTD in SSA, in addition to an introduction to integrating gender and social community analysis for greater effectiveness and impact.

    Acknowledgements

    This workshop was financed by the CRP-RTB as part of the complimentary grant awarded to Bioversity International, IITA and CIRAD. Organizers of the workshop gratefully acknowledge the support of staff of Bioversity (Burundi, Kampala, Montpellier), IITA (Burundi and Nigeria) and ISABU (Institut des Sciences Agronomiques du Burundi) for extending logistical support to this workshop. Our sincere appreciation goes to all the participants for excellent contributions and enthusiastic participation.
