Natural Products

by Portal Web Editor last modified Jun 10, 2015 10:42 PM

More than 300 million people worldwide collect and trade natural products - an important component of the incomes and benefits for poor rural households in developing countries. Yet, evidence from around the world suggests more can be done to support the role of natural products in contributing to local conservation efforts, supporting good governance, and providing economic benefits for local communities.

You are invited to participate in this global community of natural product professionals by browsing the community resources, participating in discussions, uploading your own documents and resources, and contacting us with your ideas for building connections in this community and sharing information related to the natural product sector for the benefit of all. Our goal is to support the exchange of information, resources, and ideas to further the role of natural products in rural development.
