This event is to launch a new book that showcases decades of evidence on how agrobiodiversity is essential for sustainable food systems, contributing to nutritious, healthy diets and sustainable, multifunctional landscapes. Mainstreaming Agrobiodiversity in Sustainable Food Systems: Scientific Foundations for an Agrobiodiversity Index, outlines the role of agrobiodiversity in four interconnected dimensions:
- Diverse, healthy diets
- Multiple benefits from sustainable farming systems
- Seed systems delivering crop diversity for sustainable food systems
- Conserving agrobiodiversity for use in sustainable food systems.
Light refreshments will be served just before the event.
Don't be late! A limited number of printed copies of the book will be distributed at the event, on a first come, first served basis.
