To question1: Definitely AIMS has a global role than just the products of FAO
To question2: Talking from Indian Perspective there is not much awareness of AIMS and FAO products among primary stakeholders of the Agri sector. Hence there should be means of creating awareness
To question 3: The question of critical mass is relative. But FAO has already a network and contacts worldwide in the sector. It is only a matter of systematic approach to exploit the existing network maybe beginning with training sessions.
