Final Report - CONPAB (Consultative Workshop on Participatory Plant Breeding)

Project ID: 502444
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


Participatory plant breeding (PPB) is increasingly considered as an efficient and effective methodology to develop improved crop germplasm specifically adapted to drought as well as to the complex of stresses characterising the marginal environments where rural poverty is widespread.

As revealed in their final report, the objective of the Specific Support Action (SSA) was to establish a working group of scientists responsible for plant breeding in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Greece, Italy, France and Spain that will develop plans and strategies on how to develop PPB programs in drought prone areas in a one-month consultative workshop in Syria, which is hosting one of the most advanced PPB programs. The project was a success and three new activities, not programmed initially, have been proposed to and accepted by the European Commission.
