This book is the outcome of a joint effort of Bioversity International and COGENT member countries. Being a traditional part of the rural food system and a major source of nutrition for many rural communities, coconut has been combined in various ways with locally available ingredients in cuisines that reflect the local biodiversity.  In this book, the authors share 300 ways of using coconut in recipes from 13 coconut-growing countries.

During the recent DIVERSITAS Open Science Conference in Cape Town on “Biodiversity and society: understanding connections, adapting to change,” Bioversity presented this poster on the connections between agricultural and wild landscapes. The poster urges conservation scientists and protected area managers to see agricultural communities, and the landscapes they create, as integral to the conservation of wild ecosystems. It proposes a set of “social-ecological indicators” that can be used by communities and scientists to monitor human-environment interactions and how they affect the health of the ecosystem.

Authors: Jalonen, R.; Choo, K.Y.; Hong, L.T.; Sim, H.C.; (eds.)

This compilation of the national status reports from the seven participating countries of the ITTO Project is the second joint documentation of national activities for the conservation and management of forest genetic resources in South and South-east Asian countries. The reports in this publication were provided by the National Focal Points of the ITTO project countries during the years 2007-2009, and they capture updates in the conservation and management activities and initiatives in the project countries since the inception workshop of the APFORGEN Programme in 2003. The implementation of the ITTO project is supported by FRIM, in collaboration with APAFRI and Bioversity International.
