Examples and applied use

The Crop Trust has been very active in disseminating the importance of agrobiodiversity including CWR and especially the results of the 10 year project, Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change: Collecting, Protecting, and Preparing Crop Wild Relatives. Facebook (Crop Wild Relatives) and Twitter (@CropWildRelativ) pages have been the main vehicles of dissemination information regarding CWR and their use in crop improvement. In addition, researchers of the Crop Trust and partners of the project have their personal accounts which are also used for this purpose. The use of social networks has thus been essential and extremely effective in raising the profile of CWR worldwide.

The Interactive Toolkit for Crop Wild Relative Conservation Planning was developed within the framework of the SADC CWR project www.cropwildrelatives.org/sadc-cwr-project (2014-2016),
which was co-funded by the European Union and implemented through ACP-EU Co-operation Programme in Science and Technology (S&T II) by the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States.
