“This book is the first to set out a clear overview of CBM as a methodology for meeting socio-environmental changes. CBM is shown to be a key strategy that promotes community resilience, and contributes to the conservation of plant genetic resources. The authors present the underlying concepts and theories of CBM as well as its methodology and practices, and introduce case studies primarily from Brazil, Ethiopia, France, India, and Nepal. Contributors include farmers, leaders of farmers’ organizations, professionals from conservation and development organizations, students and scientists”
The book, one of the titles in the Issues in Agricultural Biodiversity series published earlier this year, is now freely available to download as a PDF file from the Bioversity website below. The book is edited by Walter de Boef, Elizabeth O’Keeffe and colleagues.
