This paper discusses the strategic use of existing genetic diversity in addressing the constraints faced by yam (Dioscorea sp.) production in Bénin, including pest and disease pressure, poor soil and changing climate. Participatory strategies that have been developed to preserve their diversity in situ while encouraging the domestication process developed by farmers are also highlighted.
