Over 50,000 institutions and individuals now receive subscriptions to the English and French editions of Spore and to their sister publication in the Portuguese language, Esporo. Spore is sent to people living in ACP countries who ask for a subscription or who have requested other CTA publications; it is also sent to our institutional partners and to people who have participated in our activities, such as seminars and workshops. CTA maintains a record of basic information about Spore subscribers to help improve the services provided by the Centre; subscribers are welcome to advise CTA of any changes in their professional interests or circumstances to help keep this information up-to-date. Spore especially welcomes requests for subscriptions from groups such as scientific networks, NGOs or farmers' associations, who, we hope, will thus be brought into closer contact with the many other services offered by the Centre. Because Spore is CTA's only regular publication it must cater to the needs of a wide readership, from the field-worker to the decision-maker. The columns of Spore are intended to reflect the diversity of its readership, and in doing so we believe that they also provide an excellent medium for cross-communication between all the various groups involved in agricultural development in ACP countries. The more subscribers Spore has, the better it can fulfil this function.
