    Diego NaziriPosition: Socio-economist
    Working at: Natural Resources Institute (NRI) of the University of Greenwich
    Work Address: Central Avenue, Chatham Maritime, Kent, ME4 4TB

    Personal Website: http://www.nri.org/about/pensketches/naziri-pensketch.htm
    Research Activities: I have worked 2 and half years in the framework of a project funded by the Italian development cooperation aiming at the on-farm conservation and sustainable use of agrobiodiversity. The project has supported regional and national programmes for re-introducing, improving and valorizing durum wheat in Ethiopia. In particular it has promoted decentralized participatory approaches both in identification of promising varieties(PPB/PVS)and in seed production. I was in charge to carry out field surveys for project monitoring and evaluation, adoption and impact studies, input and output market analysis for strengthening market linkages, and designing effective and sustainable seed delivery systems (for this latter taking also in consideration the implications of international and national policies related to seed laws and breeder and farmers’ rights).
    I have contributed to the preparation of a report on sustainable use of plant genetic resources and implementation of farmers’ rights in Italy. The report was presented at the 3rd Session of the Governing Body of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA).
    Currently my research at NRI focuses on public and private sector agri-food standards (including Payment for Ecosystem Services) and their impacts on developing countries’ opportuntities to maintain and create trade in food products with high-value markets.

    Phone: +81 80-2571-3073

    Research Activities: My research focuses on how developing countries with predominantly pre-modern agricultural sectors explore divergent food economies in light of domestic conditions and increasingly divided international debates about agricultural development.  Specifically, this research addresses the emerging social acceptance and market embeddedness of ecological and heritage products.
    Primary area of focus: mainland South-east Asia, specifically Cambodia.
