The role of diverse agricultural landscapes in biodiversity conservation and food system resilience

14 Nov 2020

HOST: World Agroforestry (ICRAF)

Join World Agroforestry (ICRAF) and GIZ for an insightful discussion on the role that mixed and diverse agricultural landscapes play in bolstering biodiversity and food system resilience. Across a series of case studies, panelists reframe agriculture from ‘biodiversity threat’ to ‘restorative tool’, and provide policy recommendations for how the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework can empower farmers to transition towards more sustainable methods of production in the face of economic uncertainty.
