Traditional farming communities, by adopting new crops and varieties and retaining those already there, contribute to the resilience of agricultural systems. Bioversity International scientist Pablo Eyzaguirre explains more.

Many traditional farming communities, by adopting new crops and varieties and retaining those already there, contribute to the resilience of agricultural systems.

Bioversity International's Pablo Eyzaguirre and Camilla Zanzanaini explain more about the relationship between farming communities and resilience in agricultural systems in a guest post on the CGIAR Program on Water, Land and Ecosystem's blog. During May, this blog is taking a month-long look at resilience as part of events around Resilience 2014 taking place this week in Montpellier, France. Follow the conference on Twitter #Resilience2014 until the end of the week.
