GIAHS Side Events

Ten years after its initiation by FAO in 2002, during the World Summit on Sustainable Development, the Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems Initiative (GIAHS) represents a sophisticated framework for the recognition, dynamic conservation and adaptive management of remarkable systems of agriculture with their agricultural biodiversity, associated biodiversity and landscapes, food security and livelihoods. The GIAHS Initiative emphasizes the balance between conservation, adaptation and socio-economic development - sustaining agriculture development while maintaining the harmony between nature and people. It directly contributes to the achievement of Millennium Development Goals 1 and 7 of Ending poverty and hunger and Ensuring Environmental Sustainability.

In collaboration with various organizations and partners, GIAHS side events on-site Rio Centro and off-site shall be held to showcase humanity’s agricultural heritage and its role in addressing the themes and critical issues at Rio+20. The side events will also contribute to the discussions on how any Sustainable Development Goals can be taken forward beyond the conference, taking into account the significant role of family farming communities in the formulation of a post-2015 development framework that has sustainability, food security and poverty eradication at its core.
