Recognition of IGA’s Most Active CRs and RDs
Every year the International Goat Association officially recognizes the most active Regional Directors (RD) and Country Representatives (CR). RDs and CRs are an essential part of IGA. We are sincerely grateful for all that they do: promoting IGA and our International Conference on Goats, organizing in-country and regional conferences, soliciting new members, preparing country reports for IGA’s Newsletter, etc.
The Regional Director & Country Representative Committee recently selected the individuals who have done an outstanding job representing IGA in their region or country during the past year. We wish to congratulate them on their involvement and successes.
2020 was a stressful year for everyone, but these Country Representatives and Regional Directors went above and beyond. They accomplished so much and set a new standard for excellence.
The 2020 IGA Achievement Award recipients are Clara Viviana Rúa Bustamante (RD for South America) and for our Country Representative:
We also wish to give an honorable mention and special thanks to Mamta Dhawan from India for her contributions to IGA.
Thank you for all that you do.
Claudia works at the Las Cardas Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Chile. This Station, located in Coquimbo, was created in 1979. She is an Administrator of the Experimental Station (since 2000), but that does not impede her from applying and participating in research and other projects.
The Las Cardas Agricultural Experiment Station comprises 5,400 hectares dedicated to three areas: fruit trees resistant to water deficit, natural resources, and goat production. The latter is her sole responsibility in terms of production management, cheese making, and product sales. Claudia participates in the other areas in a supportive capacity.
Representante de IGA en Chile
Responsabilidades en EEA Las Cardas: La Estación pertenece a la Facultad de Ciencias Agronómicas de la Universidad de Chile, está ubicada en Coquimbo y funciona desde 1979. Yo soy la Administradora de la EE desde el año 2000, es decir soy del estamento profesional, si bien, eso no me impide postular a proyectos.
La EEA Las Cardas corresponde a 5.400 hectáreas dedicadas a 3 áreas: frutales resistentes al déficit hídrico, Recursos Naturales y Producción Caprina. Esta última es de mi exclusiva responsabilidad en cuanto a manejo productivo, elaboración de quesos y venta de productos. En las otras áreas participo como apoyo.
