A few themes we explore in this session:
- How can we use regenerative agriculture as a tool to foster biodiversity and vice versa?
- What role will the private and public sectors play in protecting biodiversity in the context of global food systems?
- How can agrobiodiversity strengthen our global food supply systems?
Juan Lucas Restrepo
Having a better biodiversity balance in the future is not foreseeable, but we can start recovery in a couple of decades if we transform food systems. Food systems transformation, the way we produce and we consume foods will be critical and of course, it’s to recover and to save biodiversity, but that will have a very positive effect on health as well.
The current food system is too homogeneous with very little biodiversity and is related to unhealthy lives and to non-communicable diseases.
