The process leading up to the just-started 2nd International Agrobiodiversity Congress included coming up with the “Rome Manifesto: Using Agrobiodiversity to Transform Food Systems.” This highlights three “commitments to help tackle global challenges including climate change, malnutrition, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation.”
- Consume diverse foods in diets that are nutritious, sustainable, affordable, acceptable, safe, and accessible to all.
- Produce food in diverse, resilient, and sustainable food systems.
- Conserve agrobiodiversity to give people the options they need to sustainably and inclusively transform food systems and improve lives, both now and in the future.
Yeah but how, you ask? You’ll have to attend the congress to find out, I guess, or at least follow on Twitter…
