Global Pollination Project

Description: 

FAO/UNEP/GEF Global Pollination Project on "Conservation and Management of Pollinators for Sustainable Agriculture, through an Ecosystem Approach". Several highly localized crop pollination failures have brought pollination issues to the fore. With managed honeybee populations rapidly declining and more crops being grown under intensive systems, there is good reason to identify, in multiple agroecosystems and ecologies practices that will prevent the loss of pollination services. Unfortunately, the level of capacity to manage pollination services, and the public awareness of their importance is very low, both in traditional and modern societies.
