Findings
Recommendations
1 It is assessed that the project overall achieved its designed objectives, completed 143 activities out of 159 activities.
2 It is recommended that a follow-up project or second phase is needed to continue and broaden impacts of the project results.
3 It pointed out that agro-biodiversity conservation is complex and difficult as - like no other subject - bridges between the widest distances of science and society. It links genetics with indigenous knowledge, farmers' participation with national interest in conservation, poverty alleviation with global markets, and it attempts to find local solutions to global threats like the worsening effects of global warming on food security. The Project limited its focus on conserving 6 selected crop groups through in-situ conservation. It pointed out that cross-institutional efforts and a comprehensive concept/definition of in-situ conservation must be adopted and incorporated into the design of the new phase/ project.
