The CGIAR–Canada Linkage Fund end-of-project workshop


At the end of a 3-year project ‘Improving rice processing strategies for food security in West Africa’, a workshop was held on 26 April, in Cotonou. The project was carried out in Benin and Nigeria jointly with the McGill University, Montreal with support from Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) through the CGIAR–Canada Linkage Fund (CCLF). It focused on postharvest operations, processing and consumer acceptability issues relating to rice. At the workshop, the project partners reviewed the activities and results of the project and explored the prospects for future research.
