Conference Description:

GCHERA grew out of an international conference held in 1998 in Kiev, which marked the 100th anniversary of the National Agricultural University of Ukraine and the completion of a four-year university linkage project involving many institutions around the world financed by the United States Information Service. The mission of the Consortium is to foster global cooperation for the improvement of higher education and research for agriculture as a prerequisite to solving the food security and environmental problems confronting our world. The consortium aims to include and serve institutions with programs in agriculture, veterinary medicine, and natural resources management, including the biological, physical and social sciences dimensions of these fields. The consortiums are held every two years. The membership is comprised largely of presidents and deans of faculties of agriculture and related sciences from more than 100 countries.
