This regional workshop was held to discuss the findings and implications from 16 case studies dealing with the role of secondary crops in rural poverty alleviation. Part of these case studies were based on field results obtained in the framework of the project "Identification of pulling factors for enhancing the sustainable development of diverse agriculture in selected Asian countries (AGRIDIV)" implemented by CAPSA in collaboration with eight countries. Other cases were developed in a co-operative research effort with other countries and regional/international organizations in order to achieve a wider presentation of the diversity that characterizes the Asia-Pacific region.
