Entebbe, Uganda, in early February 1999
Nineteen networks operating in the member states of the Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA) came together in Entebbe, Uganda, in early February 1999 for an encounter with a team of consultants engaged by the European Union to advise on future EU funding to the network bodies. The 19 networks share and disseminate information on specific crop and animal research. CTA has a particular interest in the 'network of networks', the Regional Agricultural Information Network (RAIN), which will provide this enabling function. Representatives of national agricultural research organisations and international agencies also attended the meeting. The findings of the consultants (from CIRAD, France; GTZ, Germany; and NRI, UK) are due to be finalised by July 1999.
