IARSAF’s 25th symposium tackles changing climate conditions in the agriculture sector
The International Association of Research Scholars and Fellows (IARSAF) recently held its 25th annual symposium to discuss ways to address changing climate conditions by adopting climate-smart agricultural solutions. Renowned scientists and senior leaders at IITA–CGIAR attended the seminar, themed “The Role of Climate Smart Agriculture in Ensuring Resilient and Sustainable Food Systems”.
IITA Deputy Director General, Partnerships for Delivery (DDG-P4D), Kenton Dashiell, briefed participants on the IITA Fellowship Program, stating that the platform was established to create a pan-campus organization that would embrace all the health science schools and the campus, bringing together people interested in global health. He also revealed that IARSAF, which started as a tiny idea by IITA Director General Nteranya Sanginga, is now the unit with the second-largest research revenue on the IITA campus.
