The Global Faciltation Unit (GFU) that is hosted here at Bioversity is currently hosting an e-forum on underutilised species. The forum which will run from Monday 21 April until Friday 20 May 2008, is a follow up activity from the meeting that was held in Arusha in early March 2008.
They are working towards an action plan around the following four thematic areas:
What can we do on Underutilized Plants:
- To address the opportunity of using underutilized plant species as risk buffers in times of climate change?
- To address the opportunity of using underutilized plant species for better nutrition?
- To meet the challenge of enhanced and sustained market access for underutilized plant products?
- To address the challenges regarding using underutilized species without undermining agrobiodiversity?
