In 2013 the United Nations declared that 2016 will be the International Year of Pulses. The hope of the 2016 International Year of Pulses (IYP 2016) is to position pulses as a primary source of protein and other essential nutrients. IYP 2016 will promote broad discussion and cooperation at the national, regional and global levels to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by pulse farmers, be they large scale farms or small land holders.

We invite you to explore this site and learn about the role of pulses. This website will be updated regularly, with news and more information about the events, so please come back often. If you would like to participate in the 2016 International Year of Pulses, please contact the GPC IYP 2016 team.
