Cooperation in the SOUTH

Educative series South-North
Medicinal plants of the Botanical Garden of Asuncion

séparation

Over many years the CJB has developed, on the basis of their collections (the herbarium and library) and their world renowned expertise on the understanding and management of the plant world (Flore du Paraguay, Flore des Alpes, Flore de Corse), an active policy of "botany applied to durable development", based on Ethnobotany.

The programmes which have resulted, developed from the chosen research themes of the institution (South America, Africa), use the "synergies north-south and south-south".

They systematically contain the following elements:

The objectives of these programmes are, through the recognition of the value of traditional knowledge linked to the use of these plants, a better understanding of the value of the heritage of plants and of their conservation.

Different programmes of cooperation, financed mostly by the "Fonds de développment de la Ville de Genève", have begun on this basis: Asuncion (Paraguay), La Paz (Bolivia), Dakar Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) et Patos – Paraiba (Brazil). These projects function regionally in the network "south-south."
