Workshop Report: Conserving Rosewood genetic resources for resilient livelihoods in the Mekong

Working with forestry authorities and rural communities in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam, the Conserving Rosewood genetic resources project will use in situ and ex situ methods to safeguard the genetic resources of three Dalbergia rosewood species of high conservation concern, namely Dalbergia cochinchinensis, D. oliveri, and D. cultrata. The project will develop novel, and strengthen existing, capacity for seed collection, seed source and nursery management, and associated value chain development.
