People and Plants Resources.
Jacob Bandusya, a plant resource expert from Uganda, holding People and Plants brochure in which he is featured.
Anthony B. Cunningham


The coordinators of the People and Plants Initiative, inspired by field projects around the world, have created a diverse range of training and educational materials on ethnobotany, conservation and community development. We refer to these materials as "resources", in the sense of something that people can access when in need or difficulty. We hope that you find them useful as you design field projects, address policy issues or simply deepen your knowledge of people and plants.

As time goes on , you will have complete access to most of these resources online, including Curricula, Discussion Papers, the People and Plants Handbook, Lessons Learned, Regional Activity reports, Research Techniques and Working Papers. Other materials – such as the Methods Manuals and Videos – may be ordered from the appropriate source.

Discussion Papers An occasional series published by WWF on policy issues related to ethnobotany, conservation and development
