CACAARI Governance

Currently the Steering Committee consists of eight leaders of NARS from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

The proposal has been made to expand the SC to include new stakeholders. The new SC should include:

  • 8 delegates from each CAC country
  • 1 representative from farming sector (farmer or farmer association representative)
