Crop Diversity: A Tasty Way for Keeping Our Options Open
- Impact Area
Crop diversity is often overlooked in climate discussions, yet it’s crucial to adaptation: we need diverse crops to meet the needs of current and future generations. The climate crisis poses a grave threat to global food systems. Crop failures and poor yields mean lost and blighted lives, migration, and conflict. We must act to adapt agriculture to climate change, or risk disaster.
On the sidelines of NY Climate Week, the Crop Trust, Bezos Earth Fund, and One CGIAR brought together experts to discuss concrete solutions at the Unlocking Climate Solutions: Embracing Nature and Agricultural Heritage event.
