How to participate in modern information networks on agriculture and renewable energy.
Friday 17 June 2011 FAO regional office in Budapest, Hungary
The participants engaged in a fruitful exchange of information on the existent efficient networks and extension services in countries such as India, China and European countries. The highlight of the meeting was an official re-launch of the Sustainable Renewable Energy Network (SREN), one of the ESCORENA networks, that will be used as a platform to continue the exchange of information within the area of forestry, agroforestry and short rotation forestry after the end of the Benwood project.
The ESCORENA network was founded under the auspices of FAO in order to support a sustainable agricultural development and food security. The aim is to enable easy access and distribution of the information and to ensure that knowledge is effectively shared and used in Europe as well as worldwide.
The SREN network will be coordinated and managed by Mr T.Lewis, energieautark, Austria and Mr S.K. Chauhan, Punjab Agricultural University, India (picture above:second and third from the right).
