WorldVeg East and Southeast Asia participates in KU Hi-trees
WorldVeg East and Southeast Asia/Oceania staff took part in Kasetsart University’s (KU) “KU Hi-trees: A get-together for International Organizations” held on 16 June 2017 at the university’s Bangkok campus. The event brought together KU senior management team and staff from international organizations to discuss their areas of expertise and explore different ways they can work together.
KU Acting President Dr. Chongrak Wachrinrat welcomed the participants and noted that the university recognizes the need to build partnerships not only with higher education institutions but also with international organizations that can extend the university’s global outreach.
Staff from the Asia and Pacific Seed Association (APSA), CIRAD, RECOFTC, and Winrock International attended the event, and each organization had the opportunity to introduce its work during the presentation portion of the program. WorldVeg Lead Scientist for Impact Evaluation Pepijn Schreinemachers gave an overview of the Center, its flagship programs, and current collaboration with KU.
