Mapping agrobiodiversity initiatives

Making the case for agricultural biodiversity and biodiversity-based farming systems requires a robust evidence base. Although collections of case studies exist, there is no overview of the actors involved and the scale at which locally driven transformation is occurring. A mapping of agrobiodiversity initiatives was developed, presenting a global overview of local and informal-sector initiatives that support conservation, development and use of agricultural biodiversity for resilient farming systems and sustainable livelihoods. The publication builds on initiatives from the agricultural biodiversity community and beyond and features a map and case studies to support the narrative of the different local and informal sector entry points for global change.
