Conserving Rosewoods: Annual workshop 2020

Working with forestry authorities and rural communities in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam, the project "Conserving Rosewood Genetic Resources for Resilient Livelihoods in Greater Mekong" uses in situ and ex situ methods to safeguard the genetic diversity of three Dalbergia rosewood species of high conservation concern. This Virtual outreach event in December 2020 had as its objectives to create an opportunity for project partners and collaborators to share their work in Dalbergia conservation and genetics research, and to highlight successes and reflect on accomplishments, results and challenges from the implementation so far.
