Breathing Planet Programme Strategy 4 - Local plants for local people
Kew’s pioneering research into the biology, chemistry and cultivation of wild plants is helping to identify and grow species that can provide new sources of food, medicine, and a range of other benefits. This expertise is helping people in some of the world’s poorest regions and those most vulnerable to climate change, to choose suitable wild plants for cultivation.
