This is a jointA�initiative of the Global Species Programme (GSP) and the Species Survival Commission (SSC), involving theA�Crop Wild Relatives, Medicinal Plants, Global Trees and PalmsA�IUCNA�SSC Specialist Groups. P4P will also collaborate with national, regional, and international specialist organizations working on economically valuable plants. The information generated through P4P will be used to determine sites of significance for useful wild plants species, and will be the basis to plan a�?on the grounda�� conservation actions. In parallel a policy-influencing strategy will be developed for appropriate policy fora (notably the Convention on Biological Diversity) to raise awarenessA�of the importance of conserving plant diversity amongst governments, NGOs and other relevant institutions.
