iNashr Closing Workshop
iNashr Closing Workshop

The iNASHR project (which stands for ‘Innovative Agriculture for Smallholder Resilience) aims to promote sustainable intensification of wheat-based systems across six Egyptian governorates by facilitating adoption and multiplication of ICARDA-improved seed varieties, modernizing traditional raised-bed farming methods, and reintroducing a cereal/legume crop rotation on-field, through mechanization.  

The successful project will end after three years and ICARDA is happy to co-host a workshop with its partners to showcase the agricultural innovations that have been developed to address Egypt’s water scarcity and soil quality to improve food security for smallholder family farmers. 


The project is funded by GIZ and developed alongside Egypt's Agricultural Research Center (ARC) and the Ministry of Agriculture, with Access Agriculture as an implementing partner. 

The workshop will take place on December 18 and 19 in Cairo in the presence of Dr. Ismahane Elouafi (Executive Managing Director of CGIAR) and Mr. Aly Abousabaa (DG of ICRADA) as well as Prof. Dr. Mohamed Soliman, the President of the ARC, Mrs. Dagmar Wittine (Advisor at GIZ) and Mrs. Josephine Rogers (Executive Director Access Agriculture).
