Co-Creating Solutions for Agricultural Biodiversity - In Farmers Fields and at the Policy Table

Co-Creating Solutions for Agricultural Biodiversity - In Farmers Fields and at the Policy Table

2016-12-12

This dialogue between civil society, farmers' organizations, foundations and governments will explore the strategies, opportunities and challenges for placing agricultural biodiversity at the centre of international negotiations relating to food and agriculture (CBD, CFS, UNFCCC, FAO, Agenda2030, IPBES, etc) and beyond. How can we push for a greater focus on agricultural biodiversity as a critical and indispensable resource for addressing food, hunger, climate, livelihoods, rights and social justice?  How can we ensure that farmers, indigenous peoples, and food providers’ voices are central in these negotiations?  What does ‘mainstreaming’ agricultural biodiversity look like?  Why is agricultural biodiversity essential to meeting the Aichi Targets? The session will explore ideas for collaborative advocacy, research and action to protect and restore community-based agricultural biodiversity.
