Regional strategies

The regional conservation strategies aim at identifying key collections of important crops on a region-by-region basis. The process consists of a collective analysis of the development, by holders and experts, of models for cost effective conservation and rationalization at a regional level, and the identification of regional priorities for upgrading and capacity-building.

The Trust produced a set of guidelines to help stakeholder communities plan the development of regional strategies. You can download the guidelines from the link below.
