SEARCA Agriculture and Development Seminar Series (ADSS)

The SEARCA Agriculture and Development Seminar Series (ADSS) encourages presentation and discussion of development and research issues, as well as their implications for agricultural and rural development. Through the ADSS, SEARCA aims to contribute to a vibrant scientific exchange within, and even beyond, the Los Baños Science Community.

The ADSS and its special seminars are open to the public and are scheduled as much as possible on a Tuesday, 4-5 p.m.

Speakers at SEARCA's ADSS included officials of the Philippine Cabinet and other government agencies, UN agencies, other international development organizations, and nongovernment organizations; researchers and academicians, and graduate students.

SEARCA also hosts other public lectures under ADSS, including SEARCA graduate seminars in which its graduating scholars deliver papers based on their theses or dissertations as well as other special seminars co-organized by SEARCA with other organizations.
