The e-conference will be remain active until next Tuesday, April 24.
Everybody who would like to contribute in this additional week is warmly
In this extra week, however, I would like to particularly draw your attention to recommendations that we could give to scientists, NGOs, or policy makers in order to support the sustainable use of NUS.
To this aim, I have opened a new discussion category called "recommendations" and would like to invite everybody to place his or her thoughts on recommendations there.
at the bottom or directly at
where I have entered the first posting.
As always you may also send your recommendations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Best regards and thanks for your contributions, yours Markus Schmidt
From March 26 to April 17 2007 we will host an E-conference on Neglected and Underutilized Species NUS in selected southeast Asian countries (Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam) and China. During the e-conference we will discuss our preliminary list of NUS in our partner countries in order to find some high priority NUS. Also we will discuss the role of Europe (European Union and European countries), its possible support or unintentend hindering (e.g. trade barriers) for sustainable use of NUS in our Asian countries.
