Taro on display at SIDS meeting

SamoaThe UN Conference on Small Island Developing States has just ended in Apia, Samoa. Lots of talk about partnerships for the sustainable development of these particularly vulnerable countries, although it’s unclear to me, as ever, how much of the money announced is actually new. Be that as it may, my old colleagues at SPC were very much involved, and took the opportunity of showcasing their work on the conservation and use of taro genetic resources in the poster reproduced here. An excellent example of the kind of partnerships made so much of in the media release.
