In December 2018, the CropCow and PalmCow teams conducted interviews to recruit Field Officers. These Field Officers will provide vital on-ground support and coordination.
During late October and November, 2018, a team of researchers from the CropCow project (representing UNE, BPTP-KalSel and ULM) visited several stakeholders in South Kalimantan (KalSel). The team’s goals were to select sites for CropCow research and scaling out activity in this province, to discuss work plans with local members of the market chain and socio-economics research team, and to characterise the beef market chain in KalSel.
On Friday 26th October, Mr Allaster Cox, Australia’s Deputy Head of Mission to Indonesia, met with CropCow Market Chains Research Coordinator Dr Tanda Panjaitan (BPTP-NTB) and Adoption and Scaling Out Coordinator Professor Dahlanuddin (UNRAM).
