There is a growing consensus that most activities in developing countries (DCs) concerning the conservation of natural resources and the environment have failed. That which has been constructed, often at considerable cost, has not been maintained by its beneficiaries. Adoption of project-inspired conservation techniques by farmers is the exception rather than the rule. The activities of the life sciences and technology for developing countries (STD 3) programme tried to support a reflection on research in the sustainable use and management of natural resources in DCs, focusing the attention of researchers on the creation of a common framework for their own research activities. These STD 3 brainstorming meetings reported here did not aim at finding solutions but rather at identifying the new research approaches and methodologies required in DCs.
