WP 8 - Products

Products (month):

1. Home-page set up (3) and continuously updated (4-48) and continuation of updating after evaluation (60).

http://www.fp7-palms.org/

This webpage is continuously updated and has available all material that the project has published, as well as the reports of all meetings that has been organized along these five years.

2. Materials, decision- management tools for administrative-political levels (12-48), and continuation of after evaluation (60).

Decision makers were invited to all workshops and meetings that were part of the project and instead of materials, there was intensified with them the opportunity to network, exchange ideas and proposals including approach as a palm conservation and management program. For instance, the project PALMS has been presented to two governmental agencies in Bolivia, namely the ministry of environment and the viceministry of science & technology. All materials published by the project were delivered to authorities. Protocoles (edited by Moraes & Balslev 2010) were considered to be a tool for measuring sustainable use and management of palms by the director of biodiversity (Aldo Claure, pers. comm. 2011). Therefore, administrative-political levels were involved also in discussions of the project, namely workshops and seminars called by the project about different topics, such as policy and communication and the participation of advisory committees in each country.

In order to spread findings and results of the project, the viceministry of science & technology invited to have the PALMS project announced at the webpage of the ministry of education in Bolivia. Also this governmental agency invited UMSA to be the national contact point on environment for the European Commission since 2010.

 

3. Materials for field technicians, educators, and interested individuals (13-48), and continuation after evaluation (60).

Several booklets and books were published in order to show focal palm species, advances and recommendations that the PALMS project has produced under its working packages. Material returned to communities with which we have worked and where the participants were co-authors, especially under the WP3. Also were published those booklets that show adequate harvest systems allowing a sustainable management of certain palm species (WP5). Also propaganda and calendars were distributed along with PALMS information in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia.

5. Major book and video about project results and the use

Several videos that show management, harvest, commerce and conservation of palms were edited to spread experiences and to communicate about working packages of the project. This audiovisual material was part of both institutional presentations as well as for the project as a whole. Two books include project results, such as Valencia et al. (2013) and Bernal & Galeano (in press) which have had press reports and announcements to divulgate them.
