As this year’s six-month programme draws to an end, the GRÓ LRT fellows presented the results of their final projects in an open seminar at Keldnaholt campus of the Agricultural University of Iceland. The fellows have been working on their projects over the last months under the supervision of specialists from institutes and organizations in Iceland.

The fellows’ presentations covered a wide range of issues under the umbrella of land restoration and sustainable land management (SLM), including wetland restoration, stakeholder engagement in restoration interventions, soil seed banks under sheep grazing, use of remote sensing to monitor land degradation, and successes and challenges in adoption of SLM technologies, to mention a few. The diverse issues covered reflect the various topics and tasks that the GRÓ LRT fellows are dealing with in their work in their home countries. The development and execution of individual research projects on a topic of the fellows’ choice, and under supervision of an expert(s), is key in GRÓ LRT’s approach to support capacity building in its partner institutions. After graduating and returning home next week, the fellows will share their research findings with colleagues along with other experiences from the six-month training in Iceland.

Here you can find the list with the titles of the fellows’ projects and the names of their supervisors. The Project Seminar was organised in two sessions, on 6 September and 7 September, from 9:00 to 12:00.
