Agricultural Voices Syria (AVS) was awarded the University of Sussex Research with Impact Award last week, where faculty and professional staff attended a reception in which the awards were handed out. This is the second research impact award AVS has won this year, and it continues to help us fund important initiatives within our mandate. We are extremely excited for the recognition AVS has had this past year for its impactful work in Northwest Syria and we will continue to provide information to the farmers in the region.
