Challenges & Innovations
This issue also includes two stories that illustrate activities carried out to promote eco-efficient agriculture and find scientific solutions to reduce hunger and poverty in the tropics. The first describes a joint project with several partners to help Colombian coconut farmers get prepared for an alarming "disease squeeze". The second refers to a wasp "sting operation" that could help Cambodian farmers to tackle a devastating pest: the cassava mealybug.
Special mention is also made to the award conferred to Daniel Debouck, gene bank manager, for his tireless work of collecting and conserving crop diversity.
