    Carlo Fadda

    Carlo Fadda

    ??????????Name Carlo
    Surname Fadda
    Position: Senior Scientist
    Work Address: PO Box 30677-00100, Nairobi
    Research Activities: Carlo Fadda, an Italian national, joined Bioversity International in 2004 where he has managed several projects on the management of agricultural biodiversity in Vietnam (where he spent almost 3 years), China, Ecuador, Morocco, Kenya, Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea. This experience has allowed him to understand the complexity of conservation efforts, of agricultural development in general, as well as understanding that science, policy and cultural issues play a big role in the effectiveness of conservation efforts.
    After receiving his PhD in Evolutionary Biology and Zoology in 1998, Carlo worked in the field of international cooperation and development, including scientific and development cooperation.
    From 1998 to the end of 2003 he worked in Tanzania for universities, NGOs, and the Italian Government. It is during this period that he understood the importance of combining conservation issues with the well-being of people and the requirement for new and innovative strategies to build a culture that recognizes the need to improve livelihoods of poor people and the importance of doing so without compromising the natural resource base on which those livelihoods are based.

    Research Activities: Promoting sustainable production and utilization of African indigenous vegetables since 1992. The work entails germplasm collection, evaluation, selection, multiplication, bulking, packaging and distribution. Development of agronomic, processing and preservation protocols, recipes and products of indigenous vegetables. Conservation, capacity building, advocacy and dissemination materials. Economic evaluation of priority species. The work on african indigenous vegetables has been collaborative and multidisciplinary where surveys, laboratory, and field experiments have been conducted. Final testing of the selections of the ten priority species being tested. Publications, leaflets, documentaries and dissemination materials have been developed and documented and are available for sharing. Strategic repositioning of African indigenous vegetables in the horticulture sector in Africa is important for them to contribute to food security, nutrition and income for sustainable development.
