Date Palm Global Network (DPGN)
AARINENA’s Regional Date-palm Network was established on the basis of the project document which was adopted by AARINENA’s 7th General Conference in Beirut–Lebanon. This regional network then merged into the Date Palm Global network that was established under aegis of FAO and operates out of the United Arab Emirates University at Al-Ain assisted by technical secretariat from FAO.
AARINENA serves on the coordinating board of the Network which includes the coordinators of the technical groups, regional coordinators and representatives of the different regional and inter-regional date palm networks. The Network held its first board meeting in Cairo in June 2003 and approved the constitution and work plan of the Network
