On behalf of the second IAAS East African conference organizing committee, I invite and welcome you to contribute towards this timely and very important event that brings all the stakeholders of agriculture and related sciences together and creates a platform for them to shares innovative ideas for enhancing agricultural research and extension services to achieve food security and sustainable natural resource management.
The conference will be held at Busitema University, Jinja study centre, Uganda and will last for 3 days. In the conference, students from all East African community member states will meet and share research experience in Agricultural and related sciences. Students with selected innovative research findings will present their papers to other participants as a way of sharing knowledge and transferring skills to the rest of the participants.
The conference will also provide an opportunity for the young professionals in agriculture and related sciences to network with the professionals and entrepreneurs from corporate agencies, government and private sector as a way of bridging the gap between scientists, policy makers and the practicing community while also creating employment linkages
Promotion of IAAS in East Africa and Ugandan secondary and higher institutions of learning will be another focus of the conference as a continuation of the 1st IAAS E.A Conference that was held in Kenya in Nov last year.
We are sure that the conference will serve as a starting point to enhance agricultural research and extension services to achieve food security and sustainable natural resource management which are part of the current global concerns.
We welcome you once again to support and attend the conference.
