Balanced agro-ecosystems strengthen food security
Preserving biodiversity, and the potential it stores, soils, landscapes, and diets, is one of the most pressing issues of our age. How we can live with less and practice healthier food habits is the first step towards sustainably integrating, conserving, and multiplying biodiversity in our food production systems.
The theme of this year’s World Environment Day 2020 is “Time for Nature – Biodiversity”. For ICARDA, this highlights the need to examine and rehabilitate our food production systems to be more in line with the natural world and its sustainability.
