Core Activities

The Global Horticulture Initiative promotes research in horticulture and horticultural sciences for the developing countries. Four core activities fulfil this general objective:

The Global Horticulture Initiative maintains a flexible open-door policy as regards to the submission of ideas and research proposals requesting support. Ideas can be submitted to globalhort@globalhort.org.

The criteria for research funding were identified at the Global Horticulture Initiative launch workshop in Montpellier, March 2006.

Proposed research should demonstrate a positive impact on health and nutrition, poverty alleviation and environmental integrity; be sustainable beyond project implementation; have a high return on investment; and be interdisciplinary, bridge horticulture sectors (public-private partnerships) and have an international component.
