Sunday Service

Christian churches are few and far between in Mauritania in a country that is almost one hundred per cent Muslim.

Here, three of the congregation leave their tiny Catholic church after Sunday morning service in Nouadhibou.

(Tech. note - Even allowing for the post processing, the fact that the modern digital camera was able record detail in the subjects' dark faces AND the white clothing, all under the harsh African sun just astounds me.)

The Fleet's In

Hundreds, maybe even a thousand traditional boats are berthed in the fishing port at Nouadhibou. How on earth does the boat in the middle make it through the fleet if the owner decides on a spot of fishing?

The perfect subject for a drone but the authorities frown on such devices in this rather strict state, and even normal photography in the port was a little difficult at times. That said, once away and into the desert interior, there were no such restrictions, and the landscape was absolutely stunning.

AfDB-TAAT promotes trailblazing hybrid rice technology adapted to Africa

The Rice Compact of the African Development Bank-funded project on Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) is paving the way for rice transformation in sub-Saharan Africa by promoting locally-adapted high-yielding hybrid rice varieties developed by the Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice).

As part of its approach to catalyze agribusiness and entrepreneurship development in the rice value chain with the active involvement of seed enterprises, the TAAT Rice Compact facilitated the large-scale demonstration of ISRIZ-9 seed production at a Field Day organized by AfricaRice and ISRA at the AfricaRice regional station in Saint Louis, Senegal, on 6 August 2019.

In addition to participants from ISRA, AfricaRice and RRTC, the Field Day was attended by representatives from the following sectors, among others:

•Agribusiness, seed enterprises and associations from Senegal, Mauritania and Mali (CNT, CASL, SEDAB, FASO-KABA, FEPRODES, GIE AGRITECH, GIE DYNN, UNIS, SRIA, KORKA RICE);
•Donor community (USAID, Syngenta Foundation);
•Research, development and extension organizations and university from Senegal and Mauritania (DRDR, SODAGRI, SAED, UGB, CNRADA, SONADER);
•Rice farmers and seed producers from Senegal; and
•National and local media agencies
