This project will develop a model for improving native plant varieties to make horticultural production of bush foods more efficient and profitable.
The focus is on sustained growth of value with the Bush Tomato trade as a case study, to increase business opportunities for remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The project also explores ways that laws and institutions can help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to achieve different needs and aspirations associated with their Traditional Knowledge, and to secure greater returns for the genetic resources that are used commercially.
