During the Tanzanian launch of B4FA’s new book Insights: Africa’s future – can biosciences contribute?, eminent scientists and policymakers gathered alongside over 50 journalists in Arusha, Tanzania on 16 April to discuss the implications of biosciences and agricultural technologies for Tanzania’s society and economy.
Arusha’s District Commissioner John Mongella noted, “In view of the challenges involved all existing methods to improve agricultural productivity deserve serious consideration and should be made available for farmers to make use of them. Africa is a continent of immense richness; this wealth needs to be harnessed. This book Insights will greatly contribute to public debate and understanding here in Tanzania, and I am sure it will provoke a great deal of interest. I am delighted to launch it in partnership with B4FA and its authors on behalf of the Regional Commissioner”.
