    • Since 2018 the World Farmers' Organisation (WFO) and the Climakers Alliance gathered over 100 practical solutions co-created by farmers around the world to mitigate and adapt to climate change. While the focus of the initiative was on climate, the 'stories from the field' clearly show that practices implemented to improve farm resilience may have a positive impact in terms of biodiversity conservation and restoration, healthier soils, water quality, regulation of pollination and protection against pests and diseases. The stories testify to the fact that it is possible to balance the fundamental priority of achieving food security and ending hunger with a commitment to protect and restore nature as a key enabler of farming operation. At the sae time, the proposed solutions proved successful because they were informed by and catered to the needs and experiences of the farmers. A greater recognition of the role and engagement of farmers and the development of an adequate system of incentives is thus crucial to overcome existing constraints to the integration of biodiversity into agriculture. The WFO is keen to ensure farmers have a voice in the global conversation and is currently in the process of developing its first-ever policy position on the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources, offering a farmer-driven approach to the implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework and the achievement of agriculture-related targets.
