Bioversity International's mission is to deliver scientific evidence, management practices and policy options to use and safeguard agricultural and tree biodiversity to sustainable food and nutrition security.
The Central and South America region comprises 36 independent countries and territories. They harbour a huge range of climates and topography, from sub-polar climates in the south and the mountains, through temperate and sub-tropical areas, deserts, savannas and tropical forests.
The diversity of physical conditions and human societies have combined to give the region an unparalleled wealth of biological, agricultural and cultural diversity including many neglected and underutilized crops with the potential to feed the world and improve livelihoods.
Bioversity International is working with partners in the Americas where agricultural biodiversity can contribute to improved nutrition, resilience, productivity and climate change adaptation.
