At INTA Clodomira, Santiago del Estero, they managed to complete the silkworm breeding cycle.
On April 30th, INTA's technical expert for the Seda Project, Engineer Francisco Pescio, gave a free Webinar entitled "How to spread mulberry trees?" on spreading through seeds, cuttings and planting density.
Having knowledge about the cultivation of mulberry trees is of vital importance for the sericulture producers of the region; it is one of the critical inputs as the silkworms have a diet that consists exclusively of fresh mulberry leaves.
Throughout its first four years of life, the ADELANTE Programme and its eight projects of Triangular Cooperation between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean have generated positive impacts in a good number of countries of the region, effectively contributing to 27 Goals and 9 Objectives of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Key to this has been the involvement and commitment of more than 50 public, academic and social institutions from 23 European and Latin American countries.
The silk laboratory of the Faculty of Agronomy of the University of Buenos Aires (FAUBA) published a technical note in the Bulletin of the Association of Zootechnical Engineers of Argentina on the breeding of silkworms of the autumn 2020 stage.
The publication was made by Zoot. Eng. Margarita Guzmán, member of the work team in the sericulture laboratory of FAUBA.
On 22 and 23 May, technical experts and professionals linked to the Seda Project participated in an international course on Sericulture, Agroecology and Sustainability given by Francisco Pescio within the framework of the Professional Master's Degree in Agroecology/UEM coordinated by Alessandra Silva who was also the organizer of this initiative.
Further to the participation of Lucy Larrosa, Project Coordinator, in the "Certificate in South-South Cooperation" programme given by the Instituto Universitario de Desarrollo y Cooperación (IUDC) de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) for the Ibero-American Programme to Strengthen South-South Cooperation (PIFCSS) in 2017, Professor Tahina Ojeda Medina showed interest in the project's experience and included it in two of her articles: “
Mirada Ciudadana shares its experience in the ACCESA Mexican magazine. Further to the participation of Lucy Larrosa, Project Coordinator, in the launch of the 'Network of the Americas in Open Government and Sustainable Development', which took place from 12 to 14 June 2019 in Mexico, Mirada Ciudadana was invited to join the network. A proposal was made to systematise and publish this fruitful experience in Triangular Cooperation in an issue of the ACCESA magazine dedicated to the Agenda 2030.
We have opened a cycle of virtual chats so that you can ask questions to our silk experts guests and they can answer you.
Under the MESACTS initiative, discussions have been held on the opportunity to reflect on and to analyse the consequences of the COVID 19 pandemic on the socio-emotional dimension of communities, families and children (boys, girls, teenagers and young people) and to explore to what extent the Roundtable itself could be contributing.
The first monitoring mission of the triangular project entitled "Contributing to food security for the population of Cuba" was carried out in La Habana, Cuba, from 3 to 6 March 2020, with representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture of Cuba (MINAG), the Agricultural and Livestock Service of Chile (SAG), the Chilean Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AGCID) and the Technical Assistance of the European Union's ADELANTE Programme.
