Dear all, we invite you to respond to our survey :

Deadline to respond : December 22nd, 2009

The way in which researchers debate and publish scientific results has not changed substantially within the last decades. The way this process takes place does not answer the need of field actors and stakeholders such as governmental and non governmental organizations for the diffusion of project results and the availability of specific information in their fields of action.

Researchers and field actors nowadays make increasing use of digital media. Tools such as blogs, wikis and scientific networks can enrich scientific communication. A network could enable field actors to meet the right people or get crucial information at the right time for their project development.

Field Actions Science Reports : Release of the Volume 3

Release of the Volume 3
http://factsreports.revues.org

The editorial team of FACTS Reports is proud to launch its Volume 3, Number 1. We invite you to share this information with your colleagues.

This issue includes 11 new articles in the following categories: Health, Agriculture and Environment, Economy and Development. The authors outline field projects from Africa (Cameroon, Kenya, Uganda, Madagascar), Asia (Thailand, India, Nepal, Philippines) and America (Mexico).

2010 will begin with a Special Issue focused on urban agriculture (http://factsreports.revues.org/index252.html). A hundred and fifty million urban farmers produce 15% of the world's food. This phenomenon is a common practice in developing countries but it is also becoming significant in cities of developed countries.

Don’t miss out and stay connected on our FACTS Reports information and discussion networks.
