‘To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life.’
This is Wageningen University & Research's mission. We are a research institution that focuses on the domain ‘healthy food and living conditions’. We do not just develop top-quality expertise; we also help translate our knowledge into practice worldwide. Support our projects and contribute to the quality of life.
Keep the PROTA and PROSEA portal in the air!
In order to keep the PROTA4U webdatabase in the air, the PROW Fund depends on voluntary contributions for maintenance of content and occasional adjustments of hardware and software.
If you or your institute are among the regular users of this database (or are otherwise supportive of this activity), please consider making a contribution towards its maintenance.
Useful plants to reduce poverty, malnutrition and to contribute to climate smart agriculture
The PROTA4U webdatabase contains extensive information on about 9,000 useful plants of tropical Africa: about 2,000 expert-validated review articles on 4,000 species, and ‘starter-kits’ on the remaining 5,000 species. The PROTA-generated review articles are available in English and in French.
The PROSEA portal contains the 6,700 PROSEA-generated review articles on the useful plants of South-East Asia.
By putting lesser-known useful species in the limelight, PROTA4U helps countries in tropical Africa and South East Asia making better use of their rich plant diversity in agriculture, silviculture, environmental protection and adjusting to climate change.
The database is consulted worldwide about 1,500 times per day, and has about half a million unique visitors each year.
