Where GIAHS Takes Place: The 2nd Edition of the GIAHS Newsletter!

Over the last 5 years, the GIAHS Initiative has been piloting an innovative model for engaging local communities and national governments in the dynamic conservation of agricultural heritage, and to convert all these conservation efforts into marketable incomes and incentives. In the first issue of our GIAHS Newsletter, we presented the milestones in China, India, Japan, Peru and Chile, where agricultural heritage was placed at the root of their future, and the link between “agri and culture” in enhancing food security. In this edition, we will take a deeper look on various project interventions to revitalize local communities, stories from the field, hopes and aspirations of local peoples (Philippines, Noto peninsula in Japan, the win-win model of the Chinese) as well as activities leading to social learning process, knowledge transmission and creating an enabling environment in the countries where GIAHS takes place.
