CARDI has signed an agreement with the Government of New Zealand to implement a 2 year small ruminants project.

The emphasis of the project is to build the regions capacity in improved husbandry practices and in the use of reproductive management tools including artificial insemination and embryo transfer for small ruminants as well as to establish a suite of robust information and communications technologies
(ICTs) required to improve innovation in the small ruminants sector. The latter will be done in collaboration with the Computer Science Department at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine.

Later this month New Zealand project consultant, Chris Asby, will be visiting the region (Trinidad and Tobago – 17 to 19 August), (St. Lucia -21st to 22nd August) and (Jamaica – 23rd to 28th August) to engage with key project stakeholders.
