DLB Community of Practice


To enroll into the DLB Community of practise, press here

The DLB “community of practice” is established amongst some 400 plant breeders (120 of whom are women) within African national agricultural research systems (NARS). These professionals are working on 44 crops within 28 countries of Africa. A comprehensive survey was conducted with this community as to their current priorities and new varieties available.

The DLB project partners are working with this community to mainstream demand-led breeding within breeding programs for several target crops in the countries of Africa. The members of the community of practice are mainly those who have participated in more than 20 DLB training workshops conducted in eastern, southern, and West Africa between 2015-20.
