In the latest issue of the journal Ilaria (published by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Cooperaziona allo Sviluppo) there is an article written by Stefano Piraghi. It discusses Bioversity’s work on protecting vegetable species that risk exstinction. It highlights Bioversity’s role in the return of traditional vegetable species into the common market place such as rocket in Italy and amaranth in Kenya. It also highlights the IFAD funded project that focuses on traditional vegetable species in the Peru, Bolivia, India and Yemen.
The Ilaria website only give limited access to articles and most seem to be in Italian, however if you would like to read the article in English we do have a copy of the journal here in the Library.
