The two-week Women in Agriculture Campaign concludes today with an awards ceremony recognising the hard work of Women who have contributed more than 15 years of service towards the Pacific Community’s (SPC) Land Resources Division (LRD).
Collectively, the four women awarded today have more than 80 years of experience in the agriculture field, ranging from programme management to working with genetic resources at LRD’s Centre for Pacific Crops and Trees (CePaCT).
Over the two-week campaign SPC has showed the work of these women with the aim to inspire more women and girls to join the different aspects of the agriculture sector but more importantly, bring the work that women do in the agriculture sector to forefront and recognise their contributions to the Pacific’s most important commodity, agriculture.
