Building biodiverse food systems for an inclusive, resilient and safe future
COVID-19 has brought the world to a grinding halt. Alarmingly, this includes severe impact on food systems both at production and distribution stages. As countries start reopening their economies, we have a rare window of opportunity to transform how our food is produced, for the benefit of people and the planet. On 2 June 2020, World Agroforestry (ICRAF) held a webinar to share perspectives on how we can rebuild our food systems to make them more resilient and inclusive.
Panelists included Anja Gassner, senior livelihoods specialist and head of the Research Methods Group at ICRAF; Rhett Harrison, landscape ecologist and conservation biologist with ICRAF; and Adriana Vidal, senior forest policy officer with IUCN. The webinar was moderated by Philip Dobie, senior fellow, ICRAF.
