Country Reports

These 91 country reports were prepared between 2014 and 2017 as inputs to the preparation of the FAO publication The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture. They provided an overview of information on the roles of biodiversity for food and agriculture in the supply of multiple ecosystem services, helped to establish a baseline of information on the status and trends of biodiversity for food and agriculture and highlighted remaining information gaps.

The Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture prepared guidelines to assist countries in the preparation of their reports. National Focal Points nominated by the relevant national authorities coordinated the preparation of the reports in their respective countries.

The assignment of countries to regions for the purposes of The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture followed the regional groupings used in FAO statistics and for election purposes. 

The country reports have been prepared by the national authorities as a contribution to the FAO publication The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture. The report is being made available by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) as requested by the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.
