Fourth International Conference on Apiculture in Tropical Climates

The Government of Egypt has agreed to host this Conference, which is now scheduled for 5-10 November 1988 and will be held in the International Conference Centre, Cairo.

IBRA’s International Conferences have a considerable impact on tropical apiculture because they:

• bring together practising beekeepers and bee scientists from throughout the developing world to share their knowledge.

• provide a unique opportunity for discussion between researchers, beekeepers, extension workers and representatives from aid agencies.

• alert governmental and international organisations to the importance of beekeeping in providing extra food, pollination of crops, employment and cash income.

• produce Resolutions which highlight areas requiring immediate attention from Governments and aid agencies.

The First Circular is now available from IBRA, and further information about the Conference will be given in the next edition of Newsletter.
