The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Development ACP-EU (CTA) and oriGIn have launched an Electronic Forum on GIs.
This initiative aims to:
- facilitate the periodical dissemination of key information concerning GIs among ACP stakeholders (producers, researchers, policy-makers, NGOs, etc.);
- promote the exchange of knowledge and experience among ACP stakeholders;
- provide advice/guidance in response to specific questions raised by ACP stakeholders.
