ACGT visited by the Management team from the CGIAR Generation Challenge Program

The Director of the CGIAR Generation Challenge Program (GCP), Jean-Marcel Ribaut, visited the ACGT on 30 and 31 June 2006, together with Carmen de Vicente who is responsible for capacity building activities in the GCP.

The visit provided an opportunity for discussion about the future role of the ACGT partner institutions in the GCP, both from the perspective of capacity building and involvement in research activities. The visitors also had an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the interests and activities in the ACGT institutions, during the course of a number of meetings with senior management and researchers from the University of Pretoria, the CSIR and Wits University.
