This project aims to assess the potential for scaling-up different kinds of grass-roots level support for on-farm conservation of agricultural biodiversity in Eastern and Southern Africa. It aims to provide information for grass-roots development workers, national policy makers and the international biodiversity community on what kinds of support are most effective and what are the pre-conditions for their success.

The project, funded by the British Darwin Initiative and German BMZ/GTZ Managing Agrobiodiversity in Rural Areas Project, was implemented by a consortium of individuals and organizations working on issues related to on-farm conservation in the region and internationally. It featured training, participatory field work, analysis and multi-media information products.

A wide range of project publications are available through links in the relevant toolbar sections or on CD by application to the project coordinator.
The project was completed in 2004. For information on follow-on activities, contact the project coordinator or any of the consortium members.
