TZH 06 - The Power of Pollinators: Why More Bees Means Better Food

In this week’s episode of TARGET: Zero Hunger we explore the power of pollinators.  For centuries, bees and other pollinators have labored the world’s fields without winning much recognition for their many contributions to food production. You will hear from Barbara Gemmill-Herren. She spearheaded an FAO-led study into the connection between pollination and crop yield that has been published recently in the magazine Science. Then we will take you to Ghana, West Africa, where our team from the FAO office in Accra drove across the country to visit with Peter Kwapong, Director and Founder of the International Stingless Bee Centre in Cape Coast.
