Networking and dissemination will be ongoing processes for IndigenoVeg.
IndigenoVeg wishes to achieve the broadest possible impact by sharing
its activities with the widest possible audience. External participants
will be welcome to attend the thematic
meetings. Institutions interested in carrying out surveys
on indigenous vegetables (IV) in urban and peri-urban agriculture
(UPA) in their own countries that will be directly comparable to
the IndigenoVeg surveys will be especially welcome to share the
methodology developed by IndigenoVeg partners.
IndigenoVeg partners will apply themselves to the production of
articles for publication in peer-reviewed journals and newsletters,
policy documents, simple technical support pamphlets, recipe leaflets
and radio programmes for farmers. Please consult our documents page
regularly for updates on these materials.
The two main vehicles for dissemination will be:
- A conference to be held in January
- A book which will be an up-to-date scientific
synthesis of existing knowledge and new information (largely from
the IndigenoVeg project) bringing together the fields of IV and
UPA. It will highlight the potential synergies of the two fields
with benefits for sustainable livelihoods, food security and biodiversity
conservation, illustrated with new case studies from across Africa.
Partners are currently developing the plan of action for these
two outputs. Please visit this page in the near future for updates.
