WUR and CGIAR working together to equip future researchers, managers and leaders to address challenges in multifunctional foodscapes
- Impact Area
The current pandemic is proving the urgent need to find more inclusive, holistic, sustainable and resilient alternative pathways for development. Demanding a different mindset, toolboxes, and way of working together. Besides, it requires people that embrace (rather than running away from) complexity and systems thinking!
Farming Systems Ecology Group -FSE and the Division of Human Nutrition and Health -HNH at WUR have a long history of collaboration with The Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT. Through different CGIAR Research Programs (Water, Land and Ecosystemsand Agriculture for Nutrition and Health), researchers from both institutions are working together to identify the methods, models, metrics and tools that can help to navigate foodscapes towards more sustainable futures. But this knowledge needs to be in the hands of the future foodscapes managers and promoters.
