British Red Cross unpacks resilience

 

British Red Cross conference 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the spring of 2013, at the University of London, the British Red Cross (BRC) held its first-ever national conference on resilience. Green Ink was asked to edit and produce a special book-length collection of conference papers.

“It looks really good!” was the final verdict on our product from Britcross, who also complimented Green Ink on a ‘quick turnaround’ of the raw material that came in from the various authors.

 

 

Agroforestry comes of age

 

Second World Congress on Agroforestry Highlights

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fringe interest of a handful of scientists in the 1970s, agroforestry today has become a worldwide pursuit endorsed by thousands of research and development workers. In 2009 the Nairobi-based World Agroforestry Centre celebrated this ‘coming of age’ by organizing the Second World Congress on Agroforestry.

Green Ink was delighted to accept an invitation to compile, edit and lay out the Congress highlights, which came out just a few weeks after the congress.
 

“I would like to thank you and the others from Green Ink for your efforts in producing a high-quality product that we are happy to distribute to our stakeholders.”

Towards an African Green Revolution

 

Towards an African Green Revolution

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almost everyone involved in agricultural R&D agrees that a new, uniquely African Green Revolution is essential, but just what are its core ingredients and how can they be assembled and deployed?

To answer these questions, a group of experts on African agriculture attended a set of linked discussions at the Salzburg Global Seminar 2008. Green Ink was asked to edit, design and print the resulting report, which was written by Nalan Yuksel and co-published by the UK’s Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Future Agricultures and Salzburg Global Seminar.
 

“I’ve been very happy with the service by Green Ink.”

Controlling a devastating livestock disease

 

ILRI FMD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palls of smoke arising from the mass burning of slaughtered cattle, farmers and their families quarantined on their farms, and a countryside closed to tourism – these are some of the disturbing images associated with foot-and-mouth disease (FMD).

Controlling the disease in countries where it is endemic could prevent losses in countries to which the disease spreads when infected animals or their products are imported. That’s the aim of the Global Foot and Mouth Research Alliance (GFMRA), whose inaugural activity was a workshop on this subject, held in India in 2006. Green Ink edited, designed and printed the workshop proceedings, which were published by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).
 

“I must say you and your colleagues have done an excellent job; the report looks magnificent.”

Brian Perry, Epidemiologist, ILRI
