Participatory Research and Sustainable Conservation

9 novembre 2022by 0

One of the main functions of the Jardin Ethnobotanique du Kivu is to document and identify the plant species in the area. In this programme, the participatory research approach is often focused on collecting data on wild food plants, medicinal plants, associated traditional knowledge, and plant taxonomy and assessing their conservation status. In addition, the importance of trees for traditional society is also the focus of ongoing data collection on tree species. About 130 plant species distributed in 80 families identified are currently conserved at JEBK.
