On Oct. 27, 2018, GCHERA - NJAU GCHERA WAP Management Committee Meeting was held at NJAU. Representatives from GCHERA and NJAU discussed affairs concerning the 2018 awarding ceremony, 2019 GCHERA WAP Terms and Conditions and nomination procedures, budget planning and taxation, GCHERA WAP logo design, expanding for the membership of GCHERA WAP Jury committee in terms of a wider spread of disciplinary converage, and the classification of developing and emerging economies. It was agreed that the definition of developed and emerging/developing economies would remain the same as in 2018. Thus any nominee coming from a country not listed in the agreed list of “developed” countries would be classified as coming from a developing/emerging economy. It was further agreed that nominees in the category of “developing” country should have been employed by a university or research institute, and conducted at least 70% of their teaching, research and service in a developing country.
