HOPE FOR TOMORROW
In 2000, the Garden launched the Center for Conservation and Sustainable Development to explore and implement new approaches to protecting and using plant diversity. The Center builds on the Garden's longstanding work in developing countries to strengthen scientific expertise and assist each nation to protect and manage its biological resources.
