In this week’s CTA Brussels video interview, Dr. Stefano Padulosi - senior scientist at "Bioversity International" - talks about the advantages the NUS can have for developing countries. He presents a project that aims at promoting traditional crops, by working with all the actors across the value chain, including the demand side. The project wants to raise the awareness of the user community on the nutritional values of these species, and finally raise the demand - seen as a key factor for the commercialization of the final product.
