Our scientist Andrés Parra Gonzalés and his team after completing a long and intensive training session in Bangladesh. This training session is part of the project - "The Salt solution". In this project, we work together with ICCO Cooperation to train 5000 farmers in the coastal areas in Bangladesh to grow salt-tolerant crops.
In the coastal area of Bangladesh alone, 27 million people may have to migrate by 2050 because of increasing salinisation. Salt tolerant crops can help these farmers to increase their crop yields and income in the areas affected by salinization. ICCO Postcode Loterij
