Sorghum community of practice

A sorghum community of practice (CoP) has been established, including online community spaces (hosted by IBP).

The original plan with the BCNAM and MARS projects was to have activities in Mali, Ethiopia and Sudan, but due to high staff turnover in Ethiopia, and the political embargo on Sudan at the time the project was to be initiated (2009/2010), this was not possible. It is anticipated that more partners will come on board through the sorghum CoP.

The other avenue ifor community-building s through Phase II of the stay-green project (2012–2014), which covers six African countries (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Niger and Sudan).
