dc.description.abstract The Center for Chinese Agricultural Policy (CCAP) participatory plant breeding initiative in Guangxi is highlighted in this book. The book argues that a cooperative and complementary relationship between poor farmers and their ways of organizing the key features of rural life is urgently needed. Improved farmer organization could address the challenges of food security, well-being, sustainable natural resource management and biodiversity conservation. The book explores the potentials of existing plant varieties and the operational context of local farmer participation and farmer interactions with state-sponsored research and extension for achieving rural empowerment. en
