FAO has declared 2013 as the International Year of Quinoa (IYQ). The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) recognizes the value of Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa), a staple grain with origins in the South American Andes, in terms of its cultural placement, nutrition, importance in terms of biodiversity and to overall food security. We support the IYQ and its aim to raise awareness and encourage the exchange of knowledge of quinoa production, markets, opportunities and constraints. Through this year long initiative, international cooperation between public, private and non-governmental organizations can be improved and stimulate sustainable production of this invaluable crop.
