Dr Alfred Dixon, Project Leader for the IITA-CWMP has urged partners and staff working under the project to redouble their efforts and ensure that all the key milestones for the year are met. Dr Dixon, who is also the IITA Director for Development & Delivery made this appeal at the Joint Quarterly Review Meeting (JQRM) of the project, which was held in Abeokuta Ogun State. He called for a stronger team spirit among partners and enjoined staff to submit all
data already collected for analysis. The project leader emphasised the need for partners to keep to deadlines and reiterated the commitment of the Project Coordinating Unit to backstop project activities at all times.
The JQRM, which was held on 19 September, provides opportunity for partners to review work done, identify challenges, proffer solutions, and plan for the next quarter. The September JQRM was followed by a meeting of the Communication Focal Persons who took a deeper dive into the knowledge sharing activities of the project.
The team explored ways on how to get messages across to farmers using the radio and other innovative methods.
