European learning network on functional agrobiodiversity (ELN-FAB)
The European Centre for Nature Conservation (ECNC), in cooperation with DIVERSITAS agroBIODIVERSITY International Project Office (AB-IPO), launched a new project in January 2009 with the aim of creating a ‘European Learning Network on Functional Agrobiodiversity’.
It is intended that this network will provide a platform and facility for exchange of knowledge and practical experiences between farmers, policy makers, scientists, businesses and NGOs, to enable fast and effective implementation of best practices in order to help to optimize agrobiodiversity benefits and promote sustainable agriculture.
A European-wide register of agrobiodiversity projects, contacts database and collection of practical examples will be established together with an up-to-date website. The latter is still in development but further information on the project can be obtained from Veronika Mikos
