Afghan mission postponed

The Wageningen UR mission to Afghanistan has been postponed because the weather conditions there in February are generally too dangerous for helicopter flights.

As a result, the delegation would not be able to reach Camp Holland in Uruzgan from Kabul: the only way to get there is by helicopter. Three employees were due to go to Afghanistan at the beginning of February to examine how to revive agricultural education there. It is not yet known when the delegation will depart.
