A visit to CIAT Colombia

I had an opportunity to participate in a joint Global Research Alliance and CIRCASA meeting focusing mostly on soil carbon as a mitigation tool against climate change. A wonderful location for us together formally and informally to discuss options and initiate the beginning of a refreshed research agenda. Photos are of the CIAT campus and Ngoni who took me and others on a tour of the facilities and around Cali.
