DSaT and corporating partners need to be commended, for taking up this stance on Cassava conservation
The conversation surrounding the Cassava Brown Streak Disease (CBSD) in Zambia needed a JUMP START. This is exactly what we have done.
Cassava is the second staple food to maize. Some of the populations in the Northern part rely on Cassava. It is their main stay. Cassava is a cash crop. Some of the industries rely on Cassava.
What is happening to Cassava in the region?
Researchers will share the research findings. The current status on this crop will be explained in detail. Local scientists will be joined by their counterparts from the region to share information on CBSD. This is not all, next steps will be agreed among key stakeholders – action!
We don’t just speculate, we show, it’s evidence-based. We don’t ask tough questions! We engage to stimulate action among key stakeholders to support evidence-based science.
Nayo nayo science
