In regards to people, plants, traditional knowledge and culture, there are two global initiatives which I feel are very important to the Caribbean region, and the Society for Economic Botany (SEB) Caribbean Chapter can play some role in both. The first is the WHO Traditional Medicine (TM) strategy 2014-2023. The second initiative is Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) for the region. The research emanating from the SEB Caribbean Chapter members can make valuable contributions in both these issues. There is a lot more to be done in the region, and information sharing, documentation, knowledge preservation and cooperation are key ways in which the society can work towards its mandate.
