HarvestPlus Set On Global Convenor Role
March 9, 2016

Izmir, Turkey sits atop the Gulf of Izmir with stunning views of the 11 metropolitan districts that constitute the ancient city once known as Smyrna. It was there that HarvestPlus staff travelled from 18 countries to engage in an organizational dialogue on the HarvestPlus Strategy for 2016-2020. Mainstreaming biofortified crops into the food chain and assuming the role of a global convener will have a transformative impact on how HarvestPlus does business. As HarvestPlus sets new goals, priorities and targets for the coming five years, staff met in both plenary sessions and small breakout groups to discuss the wide-ranging implications of the new strategy for: technical approach, intellectual property issues, fundraising, partnerships, marketing, communications and operations. The meeting took place from February 22-26, 2016.
