Making local crops work for nutrition-sensitive agriculture

Supporting nutrition-sensitive agriculture through neglected and underutilized species is a new operational framework, developed by Bioversity International and the International Fund for Agricultural Development, that sets out how using a diversified range of crop species and varieties can put nutrition back into our food production systems. The publication draws attention to the underutilized potential of thousands of cultivated and wild food plants that are no longer used in mainstream agriculture, having fallen victim to modern cultivation practices, the standardization and uniformity of globalized markets or changing eating habits.
