A delegation led by Robert Bertram, USAID’s Chief Scientist at the Bureau for Resilience, Environment and Food Security, during a recent visit to Rwanda and Burundi, has lauded the remarkable progress achieved and the early impact made by partners in fifteen months of implementing the AID-I GLR project.
