Project Summary:
Rural livelihoods will be enhanced through the conservation and sustainable use of economically-important fruit and nut species (F&N) in Georgia and Armenia. In-country partners and RBG Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank will collaboratively deliver theoretical and practical conservation and sustainable management training to women, men and children from rural Caucasus communities, and hold information-sharing workshops on threats and uses of F&N. Ex-situ seed conservation, global IUCN-accredited red-listing and research into genetic traits of commonly-harvested economically-important F&N will support sustainable rural livelihoods. F&N conservation enhanced in Georgia and Armenia, by community members working together to strengthen economically-important ecosystem-services for rural livelihoods, helping build ecological resilience through knowledge and protection of plant resources.
