In situ Conservation of CWR - eLearning Modules

Welcome to the eLearning Modules complementing the In situ Conservation Manual of CWR. These modules have been developed to help conservationists gain preliminary insight into the tools and methods involved in the effective conservation of CWR. The goal of the Modules is to spread information on in situ conservation of CWR in order to enhance conservation of CWR, build the capacity to use this information and raise awareness of the potential of CRW for improving agricultural sustainability.
