Biodiversity is vital for the production of food and to conserve the ecological foundation needed to sustain peoplesí livelihoods.
It is vital for adapting crops and animals to a range of environmental conditions and contributes to important functions,
like nutrient cycling, pest and disease regulation, pollination, maintenance of water quality, soil health and erosion control. Biodiversity provides many services to agriculture, but agriculture too can serve biological diversity.
This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.
