        There are many traditional crops which in the past years have become almost absent from the markets, and have been increasingly marginalized by research and development; named neglected and underutilized species (NUS) in the scientific jargon, these have however in many cases nutritional profiles which are far superior to the nutritional profile of major crops (as potatoes, rise, maize). They also present a resilient advantage, needing less water, and showing resistance to drought. 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. On 15th May 2013, Stefano Padulosi held a presentation on “Promoting agrobiodiversity: leveraging GI potentials in the use of underutilized species” as part of the Brussels Briefing ‘Geography of food: reconnecting with origin in the food system’ organized by CTA Brussels at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels.
