|From Zambia Workshop|
Yesterday the 40 or so participants split up in to nine topic area groupings. We spent most of yesterday going over the environmental considerations of each topic area and then settled down to targeting potential proposals for eventual submission to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.

No one solution can solve the vast number of agricultural problems in Africa and South Asia. Today, groups will start to visit one another to share ideas and explore potential linkages.
