Opportunities for Support

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations will be offering support to several scientists from developing countries to participate and present their work at WCGALP 2018. Participants receiving full support will be entitled to registration, economy class air fare and accommodation.

To apply for support, please notify Mr. Paul Boettcher of FAO at the time of paper submission, providing him a copy of the paper and summary and specifying the session to which the paper was submitted. In addition, please indicate if you have funds to support partially your own participation (e.g. the air ticket), as this will increase your probability of receiving support.

Priority to support will be given to applicants who:

  • Are from least developed and food deficit countries;
  • Are working in a developing country or who are studying local genetic resources in another country and will return to his/her home country at the completion of studies;
  • Have been selected to present their work orally; and/or
  • Are able to partially support their own participation;

Support will be provided only to those applicants who have already obtained an entry visa into New Zealand
