Harnessing the Power of Nature: Building Resilient Food Systems through Greater Agrobiodiversity

06 Nov 2020

As global temperatures rise and humanity races to find scalable solutions to current and impending food security crises, agrobiodiversity will be pivotal in protecting crops from climatic shocks, pests and disease outbreaks. While we know that a more diverse food system is a more resilient one, it is not clear how we will safeguard and promote agrobiodiversity in the face of population growth, rising inequality and COVID-19.

In this plenary, the Crop Trust explain why agrobiodiversity will be integral to a food and nutrition secure future, while sparking much needed discussion on what the next steps should be for SDG 2.5 in the post-2020 Agenda.
