Conserving biodiversity for food and agriculture and promoting its use in support of global food security and sustainable development, for present and future generations

Biodiversity for food security and nutrition

Biodiversity for food and agriculture is among the Earth’s most important resources. Thousands of species and their genetic variability make up the web of life and are indispensable to adapt to new conditions, including climate change. The Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture is committed to conserving biodiversity for food and agriculture and promotes its sustainable use for food security and human well-being and development worldwide, for current and future generations.
