Poor communication can have dire consequences in vital areas like the environment and health. Innovative 'science shop' projects, which translate society's questions into a language that scientists understand, are making a difference in remote Bolivian communities learning about Chagas disease, among Hepatitis C patients in Tunisia, and in projects closer to Europe's shores, too.

From tackling poverty, climate change and environmental degradation to preserving cultural heritage and agricultural sustainability, crop diversity is integral to solving some of the greatest challenges on the planet. An EU-backed research effort has made agrobiodiversity conservation in the Andean region its business. The hope is that crops like tarwi, amaranth, cañahua, arracacha, yacón and isaño could one day become household names as quinoa is today.

Photo of article Local communities and scientists join forces for conservation

Such is the wealth of biodiversity in Latin America that several countries sport the label 'megadiverse'. But biological hotspots are also often home to precious cultural diversity. EU and Latin American researchers studied community-based initiatives to protect both - together known as 'biocultural diversity'. The findings fed into guides to local conservation.
