Under the scope of project “Agrotraining - Proofing GBIF use on agrobiodiversity through needs assessment and training ”, this international training course took place at Faculdade de Ciências - University of Lisbon, on June 28-30.

This course aim at responding effectively to new challenges concerning the use of agrobiodiversity information on food production and healthy diets. Farming systems rely on the sustainable exploitation of crop wild relatives, landraces and neglected or underutilized species, but also on non-crops wild biodiversity that benefits ecosystem services in the agricultural landscape.

The following topics were addressed:

The use of biodiversity information was extensively explored, either from GBIF (including the infrastructure of software tools) or other sources, in which case links with GBIF were promoted or tested.

Final Course Programme available soon
