The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of plant and crop science societies from across the globe. GPC seeks to bring plant scientists together to work synergistically toward solving the pressing problems we face.
The central focus of the GPC is to define and engage in coordinated strategies and projects that will have impact on the most critical global issues: world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.
An online platform is helping to tackle a decline in the number of undergraduate students studying plant science.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), together with the Department for International Development (DFID), invites proposals for its agriculture-nutrition impact studies. These medium to long-term research studies and evaluations will deliver robust evidence on the impact of agriculture on nutrition and health outcomes. Knowledge generated from these studies will contribute to nutrition-sensitive programmes and policies in agriculture at the national, regional and global levels. Preference will be given to studies taking place in one or more of the 34 countries suffering from the highest burden of stunting in children: Afghanistan; Angola; Bangladesh; Burkina Faso; Cameroon; Chad; Democratic Republic of the Congo; Côte d’Ivoire; Egypt; Ethiopia; Ghana; Guatemala; India; Indonesia; Iraq; Kenya; Madagascar; Malawi; Mali; Mozambique; Myanmar; Nepal; Niger; Nigeria; Pakistan; Philippines; Rwanda; South Africa; Sudan; Tanzania; Uganda; Vietnam; Yemen; Zambia. There is particular interest in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
