I am a member of the Crop Wild Relatives (CWR) Project team and help in the management of the project. This involves activities such as data gathering for crop gene pools, compilation of the species collection guides, and the repatriation of germplasm accession data to the collecting countries and partnership institutions. I also help to develop complementary project plans that will increase the impact of the Crop Wild Relatives Project and build on partnership agreements with the collecting countries.
