Considering the Global COVID-19 pandemic, at this juncture we would like to encourage all our community to closely follow government instructions in their countries and regions. Safety is the number one priority at this point in time. We do recognize the important task the agricultural sector currently has in keeping the locked-down populations supplied.

GFRAS continues to work remotely while following government recommendations, and is closely monitoring how the current outbreak will impact project implementation and RAS work across the globe, and has created a special section in the website with recommendations and initiatives linked to RAS and maintaining food availability for people under home quarantine so the pandemic is not aggravated by a food supply crises and/or a food price crises.
