E-forum on underutilised species

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: 

  1. To address the opportunity of using underutilized plant species as risk buffers in times of climate change?
  2. To address the opportunity of using underutilized plant species for better nutrition?
  3. To meet the challenge of enhanced and sustained market access for underutilized plant products?
  4. To address the challenges regarding using underutilized species without undermining agrobiodiversity?
