The CA4OA or Conservation Agriculture for Organic Agriculture Consortium Team held its culminating event via a virtual signing ceremony, Tuesday August 24, 2021 8PM Philippine time.

The Memorandum of Understanding ceremonial signing between Kansas State University and among 12 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) including the Catanduanes State University was attended by no less than the President, Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza.

Christine Catindig, from Education USA delivered the welcome remarks and thanked the engagement of each SUC in developing global partnerships and for their unwavering support and commitment.

Associate Provost Dr. Grant Chapman represented KSU in the signing ceremony and read a signed message from the KSU President, Retired General Myers, and delivered the closing remarks.

Meanwhile, Dr. Manny Reyes, an Agro-ecological engineer and SIIL Coordinator for Center of Excellence on sustainable Agri-intensification and Nutrition in KSU, said that a technology to mitigate climate change through organic agriculture is very much needed in addressing the pandemic in terms of food and nutrition. โ€œWe all can do good together for the benefit of all farmers in the Philippinesโ€, he said.

CA4OA ultimately has its purpose of integrating conservation agriculture, minimum soil disturbance like the permanent no till, biodiversity, diversification of soil rotation, and agriculture research.

It can be recalled in February 26, 2021 when CatSU under the management of then Officer-in-Charge Dr. Freddie T. Bernal, forged an MoU with Kansas State University, that aims to promote programs and activities between the said institutions in which they agreed to work on cultural, educational and research cooperation which they may recognize shared interest. 

The partnership and collaboration with International Higher Education has been made possible through the initiatives of the Center for International Relations and Continuing Professional Development Services under its then Director, Dr. Joseph G. Zafe and now, Prof. Romeleen Go-Vela. #cvecilles
