GEOGLAM RAPP (Rangeland And Pasture Productivity), is organising its 6th annual strategic workshop in Kenya (Nairobi), along with a session on SDG (focus on Goals 2 and 15), and an Open Data Cube workshop, during the same week.

UPDATE (5th June):

ILRI and the RAPP team would like to thank everyone again for the attendance & participation to the event which was a great success: almost 70 participants in total, more than 20 countries represented, good insights for concrete way forward. Not to mention the well received SDG panel session which opens a new area of interest for RAPP.
