Eurosite/ Farmer’s Pride Webinar: Crop wild relative conservation – adding value to Europe’s natural sites
Eurosite hosted a webinar in June 2020 to highlight the value of crop wild relatives in a European and global context and to explain which species are a priority for conservation in Europe and why. Crop wild relatives (CWR) are wild plant species that provide vital diversity for adapting and improving our crops – particularly in the race to combat the adverse impacts of climate change on agricultural production systems. Farmer’s Pride project research has shown that a significant number of CWR species occur within protected areas in Europe, including at least two thirds of the highest priority species in need of conservation action in the region.
