AgInfo Worldwide publishes papers from 13th IAALD Congress

In April 2010, the IAALD XIIIth World Congress brought together practitioners from countries around the world involved in the production, management, distribution or use of knowledge in the agricultural and rural development sectors.

Together, these practitioners and users exchanged information about new practices to support research, action and innovation for sustainable rural development.
