The Rural Enterprise for Alleviating Poverty
(REAP) project – managed by Winrock and funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) – was featured in a recent post
on the USDA Blog. REAP’s goal was to help farmers boost incomes by adding prawns and vegetables to their existing farming efforts.
Winrock’s Dan Gudahl will make a presentation at USAID as part of an Agriculture Sector Council Seminar on Nov. 30 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. Gudahl will talk about the success of the REAP project and discuss future approaches for sustainable agricultural development in Bangladesh.
Forest Day 5 will feature Winrock International’s Sandra Brown as a keynote speaker and will be held in Durban, South Africa, on Dec. 4. Brown’s keynote, “Building Capacity to Address Reference Levels, Interim Steps, and Links to Measurement System Design,” will be part of the discussion forum titled: “Exploring reference levels and monitoring for REDD+: Early country pilot activities.”
