Research Project Presentation: Irish Embassy, Ethiopia

On the 19th of July, I went to the Irish Embassy in Ethiopia to give a short presentation on the work I have been doing together with the International Livestock Research Institute and MSc CCAFS at NUIG. The seminar started with a CCAFS representative in Ethiopia, Solomon Dawit, who gave in detail an explanation on some of the projects done in Ethiopia by CCAFS and explained its role in bringing developmental changes to the country regarding climate change, its impact on the society and other related issues.I then followed by presenting some of the important discoveries from the research project I have been working on. The main interest lied on policy measures for forage production as questions and comments I received showed interests in knowing if there are policies available in place to facilitate the adoption and enhancement of the use and cultivation of forage species utilized in Ethiopian Livestock systems. The seminar showed to be of great advantage to me as it pointed important factors I needed to consider with regard to my research project.
