William Graham AM, Commissioner for Assembly Resources, National Assembly of Wales:
“We are helping people in Africa to help themselves. No project underlines this better than the work of the Monmouth-based charity Bees for Development”.
Dr. Nicola Bradbear, Director, Bees for Development:
“We are excited at this expansion in the range of information we provide free of charge to the developing world. As climate change becomes evident, efforts to improve agricultural sustainability become more important. This new web site will help more people in Africa to practise sustainable beekeeping. This helps to alleviate poverty and helps us all, by maintaining stocks of healthy bee populations.”
