What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
I use standards set by USAID and Feed the Future, and I adapt those standards to our project needs. I created and manage our communications strategy and website (ingenaes.illinois.edu), our newsletters, and disseminate our publications and knowledge through tools like agricultural development portals (Agrilinks, DEC, GFRAS), social media platforms, and email.
