Vetiver System - Training Power Point in French

Saturday, February 26, 2011

We keep hearing about high food prices, food supply not meeting demand, and the potential food production problems relating to climate change. A whole bunch of measures need putting into place to mitigate these problems.  The Vetiver System is one of the measures, and is particularly important for rainfed - non irrigated - farmers in Africa.

Criss Juliard put together a nice power point presentation (available as a pdf) for awareness and training for French speakers in Haiti (where a large vetiver program is being put into place by the WINNER project, the private sector, and NGOs.  The presentation, would be useful for VS promotion in other French speaking countries locatec in the tropics and semi tropics.
