The purpose of the project is to provide farmers, institutes and local communities with knowledge, methodology and policies to conserve globally significant in situ/on-farm horticultural crops and wild fruit species in Central Asia. This will contribute to achieving sustainable agricultural development, food security and environmental stability. The project has a particular focus on traditional local varieties of fruit crops maintained by farmers and their wild relatives growing in forests, and on the enhancement of farmers' and community capacities to conserve in situ horticulture diversity.
