IYQ Master Plan

The IYQ constitutes the first step in an ongoing process to focus world attention on the role that quinoa´s biodiversity and nutritional value play in providing food security and nutrition and in poverty eradication, in support of the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals including the Millennium Development Goals.

The IYQ is expected to be a catalyst to enable the exchange of information and to start to generate medium and long-term programs and projects for the sustainable cultivation of quinoa nationally and globally.

In the short term it should raise awareness of the importance of the production and consumption of quinoa and its contribution to food security.

In this context, for the implementation of the IYQ, this master plan has been designed as a dynamic tool based on three components: information and communication, research, technology and marketing, and fundraising and cooperation.
