What do you expect of a collaborative network on quinoa? The collaboration is one fine mean in the emerging scientific arena to progress. The ideology, avenues, style and dimensions all are unique when considered from individual to individual. Quinoa is emerging as one of the most emphasized crops in the world due to hyper appraisal in the form of international year activities by UN during 2013. The versatility of this crop for being resilient, balanced diet and cash crop in the present food scene across the globe attract people to eliminate food scarcity, hunger and malnutrition from the affected areas. This network is therefore seen as a potential umbrella for research, training, consultation and outreach in the days to come.
What degree of interest do you have in professional networks? Collaboration and facilitation for the others is the backbone of progress in the 21st century and I have a strong belief on it.
What suggestions would you make for the future development of the quinoa network? In majority of the countries of the world, quinoa is not known. A big outreach should be executed on regional basis utilizing the FAO regional and subregional centres and through involving funding/donor agencies. A campaign should be launched on promoting the local recipes in the already targeted areas across the globe.
Promotion of research of quinoa must be strengthen through TCP in the new regions as well as through medium to large size projects in the areas of successful introduction. Most of the workshops/seminars/ symposia should be focused in the new areas of successful quinoa introduction.
