COAG25 Side Event 2 - Harnessing biodiversity for sustainable agriculture

Iran Room (FAO headquarters)
26.09.2016

Agriculture and biodiversity are inextricably linked. Agricultural production depends on the diversity of crops and livestock as well as pollinators and soil biodiversity. Over generations, farmers have contributed to this diversity, but conversion of land and some agricultural practices threaten biodiversity. How can we protect biodiversity and harness it to support increased agricultural production for food security, climate adaption and other goals? The Convention on Biological Diversity – COP13 will address these issues.

Topics: Agriculture & crops
