MasAgro gains the support of the Mexican Council for Sustainable Rural Development

September 14, 2012

On 30 August 2012, 140 members of the Mexican Council for Sustainable Rural Development visited CIMMYT headquarters in Texcoco, State of Mexico, to observe its experimental plots, become acquainted with the germplasm bank and receive information on the main advances of the Sustainable Modernization of Traditional Agriculture (MasAgro) program. The event presented a real challenge in terms of logistics and protocol due to the number of participants and the people that make up the Council: representatives from 11 Federal Secretariats, the Rural Development and Livestock Commissions of the Mexican Congress, public and private farmer organizations, distributors, businessmen and other members of the agricultural and industrial chain, as well as educational and research institutions. Nevertheless, MasAgro’s Karen García and Bram Govaerts thought the visit was a complete success for it focused on the program’s achievements and, most importantly, gained the support of the members of this influential Council.
