We are delighted that the Agrobiodiversity Index, supported by NEXUS Gains, has won the Food Planet Prize 2023. Congratulations to Sarah Jones and the Alliance of Biodiversity and CIAT team!

The Curt Bergfors Foundation received more than 1,000 nominations for the 2023 edition of the prize, and the Agobiodiversity Index was one of eight projects shortlisted. It was selected as the final winner by a jury on Friday 9 June.

“For the Agrobiodiversity Index, winning the Food Planet Prize 2023 means that we can take our work to the next level. Change is a process, and this will allow us to catalyze the process into policies and practices,” commented Sarah Jones, co-lead of the initiative.

“The climate crisis is already well known, compared to the biodiversity crisis. This will allow us to put the agrobiodiversity crisis on the map,” added Arwen Bailey, member of the Agrobiodiversity Index team.
