U of Mekelle / Prolinnova–Ethiopia at AgKnowledge Share Fair!

Beyene Tedla from the Local Seed Business (LSB) Project at Mekelle University in Tigray, Ethiopia, attended the AgKnowledge Share Fair organised by ILRI (International Livestock Research Institute) in Addis Ababa in late October 2010. There, he took part in various focus groups, such as on collaborative writing, social media, documenting farmers’ knowledge, and women and knowledge. At the Fair, he shared information from various University initiatives, not only LSB but also Women Learning Women, Women and Food Science, and the work of the College of Dryland Agriculture and Natural Resources, as well as information on the work of Prolinnova–Ethiopia. And now, after his return, Beyene is sharing with us his enthusiastic report about the “one of a kind” networking and learning event, with several photos, so that we can get a colourful idea of what happened during the Share Fair.

More information about the Fair can also be found under http://www.sharefair.net
