Sistemas Importantes del Patrimonio Agrícola Mundial (SIPAM)

The approach of the Alliance for the Mediterranean Diet has potential common goals with those of the FAO- Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems Programme in achieving sustainable agriculture and food systems which reduce the impact on the environment, conserve biodiversity, landscapes, cultures and traditional knowledge.

Los representantes de los SIPAM de China, España, Japón, Marruecos, Perú y Tanzania compartieron sus experiencias y desafíos sobre el uso sostenible de los recursos naturales, así como los tipos y funciones de sus servicios ecosistémicos. También exploraron cómo los SIPAM pueden contribuir a los objetivos del Decenio de las Naciones Unidas para la Restauración de los Ecosistemas.

This webinar jointly organized by the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability Operating Unit Ishikawa Kanazawa (UNU-IAS OUIK) and the Food and Agriculture of the United Nations (FAO) shared the challenges faced by GIAHS communities in managing the impacts of COVID-19, as well as a discussion on the resiliency of GIAHS in such a crisis and the opportunities for recovery and building back better from COVID-19.

This first webinar will be an opportunity for FAO to provideinsights on Nature-Based Solutions in Agriculture with real and time- tested examples coming from Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS). The objective of the webinar is to also open a debate on the potentialities of Nature-Based Solutions that can support the agri-food systems of the countries.
