The People and Plants Initiative
Ethnobotany, Conservation and Community Development

WWF International, UNESCO and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew created the People and Plants Initiative in 1992. We carry out applied research projects, community workshops, exchanges and training courses with young ethnobotanists from developing countries who are interested in conservation and community development. In order to disseminate results and information, we produce videos and publications, including methods manuals, working papers and the People and Plants Handbook.
