From 2013 to 2015, pilots in 15 protected areas in China led to the marketing of 15 protected area friendly products (rice, wheat, wild vegetables, walnuts, etc.). Many lessons have been learnt from these successful demonstration schemes and these lessons will be shared by GPAFS with protected areas all around the world to support them into scaling up their own PA-friendly products and services.

The table below summarizes information about the products that have been brought to market. The development of these products continued after 2015 and is itself being scaled up with the support of GPAFS.
