Bioversity International and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are conducting a global survey to identify current capacity and emerging needs with regard to research and development of neglected and underutilized species (NUS)
The survey follows from the key policy recommendation of the 3rd International Conference on Neglected and Underutilized Species to strengthen human and institutional capacity for research and value chain development of NUS.
The survey targets researchers, educators and development specialists who are involved in research on NUS.
The results will guide decision makers on needs and mechanisms for better integration of neglected and underutilized species in agricultural research and development.
Deadline for participation is February 7, 2014.
