Under this topic the GFU will present the evaluation of some cases of promotion of underutilized species.

The studies will take into account the objectives for the promotion, the approach used and will look at the entire chain from the genetic resources to the consumer of the products obtained from the species promoted. The evaluation will include the social, ecological and economic impacts in the area of origin of the species.

This will help to identify "best practices" and to develop concepts and strategies to be applied in future development programmes for underutilized species.
