With the experiences and impressions of our research trip to the Philippines in mind, we have now started planning the visit of the MASIPAG coordinators, breeders and farmers to Germany for 2020. During a one-week round trip, the German and Philippine partners, together with RightSeeds, will continue to exchange ideas on various topics related to commons-based plant breeding.
Currently, the Philippine and German practitioners bring their suggestions and wishes for content and destinations into the planning process. Many German partners have already indicated that they would like to welcome the group on their own premises during the tour in order to give the Philippine guests as many practical insights as possible. Given the large number of interesting destinations our first big challenge will be to develop a feasible itinerary for the short time of the round trip.
