Learning from the Earth: Indigenous Youth in Agrobiodiversity

16 Nov 2020

Agriculture is the primary source of income for most rural households in Asia and the Pacific. But climate change and biodiversity loss present huge threats to communities’ livelihoods – the socioeconomic ramifications of which could long outlast those engendered by COVID-19.

To promote youth engagement in biodiversity protection toward achieving the pledges and commitments laid out by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the Paris Climate Agreement, this Youth Daily Show – led by Young Professionals for Agricultural Development in collaboration with the Youth in Landscapes Initiative – celebrates what young Indigenous Peoples working in agriculture are doing to protect and promote biodiversity.
