Biodiversity

The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat all rely on biodiversity. It is fundamental we produce food in a way that preserves the environment. That’s why safeguarding natural resources and biodiversity is critical to people’s health and planetary wealth. Sustainable agriculture is the answer to reverse trends that lead to biodiversity loss.

FAO has a long history of fostering sustainable agricultural development and the sustainable use of biodiversity for food and agriculture to pursue its goal of ending poverty and hunger. Closely interlinked, biodiversity and ecosystem services support agriculture in multiple ways, benefitting farmers’ livelihoods and well-being.
