Project Description

This report is the result of the workshop held at FAO HQ in Rome on September 2017. This workshop, organized by the DIVERSIFOOD partners together with the ITPGRFA and Bioversity International, represented a key opportunity to discuss with international institutions about the global dimension of the community seed banks issues and their potential role in the global framework of agrobiodiversity conservation, using a community agrobiodiversity management approach. The report integrates the experiences identified by DIVERSIFOOD in Europe with other experiences of community seed banks around the world: from Ethiopia to Bolivia, from Guatemala to China.
