Project Summary:
This project aims to secure benefits of agro-biodiversity for poor farmer households in two vegetable production regions in Madagascar: Itasy and Antsirabe. First, the project will protect genetic resources of traditional vegetables through ex-situ and on-farm conservation. Second, the project will support Malagasy women farmers with practise-oriented research and quality-seed production to grow promising varieties of traditional vegetables. This will make farming systems more climate-resilient, secure increased income for women farmers, and improve food and nutrition security of Malagasy households.
