It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our 4th annual CARDI Day celebrations.
CARDI Day is an important event in our outreach calendar. Across the Region, on this symbolic day we open our doors to all stakeholders to experience first-hand the breadth of our research and development activities.
In 2019, the Institute conducted/initiated research in a range of exciting areas including climate resilience, agro-energy, medical cannabis, industrialisation of Cascarilla and development of the regional coconut industry among other areas. Today, we look forward to updating you on the progress of these and other activities.
