Résumé du projet
To conserve the endangered indigenous species of plants, the preferred strategy of the project is the encouragement of community participation to rectify the ongoing plant gathering practices and implement proper management skills to protect these resources.
The significant activities of the project include awareness raising, designing a local management plan in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources, identification of the important habitats of four endangered indigenous species, domestication of these species through germplasm collection, plantation and evaluation of different agronomic and economic aspects in three different locations.
To share the lessons learned three workshops will be held in Tehran and Isfahan. Educational booklets, slides and videos will also be prepared to document and share the lessons learned.

The important steps of this project are :
1. To establish a local cooperation in conjunction with Natural Resources Department for proper management of plant genetic resources in the area and create a sustainable source of income for participating groups.
2. To identify the most important habitats of three endangered indigenous species, Astragalus cyclophylon, Vicia villosa and Kellusia odoratissima
3. To domesticate these species by germplasm collection, plantation and evaluations of various agronomic and economic aspects in three different locations.
4. To increase public awareness and local knowledge about plant genetic resources and their importance in their present and future economy and livelihood
