Many thanks to Tomaz Bartol for posting this item. I would like to take this opportunity to add that the workshops he mentioned are conducted in the framework of project “Strategy formulation and capacity building in support of an agricultural information system” (TCP/UKR/3005), which was launched one year ago. One of the project’s outputs was an information strategy for the agriculture sector of Ukraine, which was finalized during a consultative seminar of major stakeholders in Kiev from 30 May to 2 June 2006. Another major output will be a set of training materials for capacity building activities in agricultural information management. In this respect, the National Agricultural University of the Ukraine is currently preparing a Russian language version of the IMARK module on Managing Electronic Documents.
