What Is the Agrobiodiversity and Climate Change Project About?

The Agrobiodiversity and Climate Change project is a project under the Platform for Agrobiodiversity Research. The Platform’s first Stakeholder Meeting, which took place in Rome, Italy in May 2006, identified agrobiodiversity and climate change as one of the priority areas the Platform should be working on. With support from Bioversity International and the Christensen Fund the Platform was able to start its new project on Agrobiodiversity and Climate Change in April 2008:
“The use of Agrobiodiversity to manage Climate Change: Charting experiences from rural communities and indigenous peoples”

The project will initially run for one year and aims at gathering and making available information on the use of agrobiodiversity by communities facing climate change. Also, the project will try to highlight areas that need further research, build new partnerships and raise awareness of the role of agrobiodiversity to cope with climate change.

This Agrobiodiversity and Climate Change project website is of major importance to the project, as this is the place where all who are interested find an opportunity to interact and discuss about the project’s topic, to find and share information on projects concerned with climate change coping strategies by use of agrobiodiversity, and to check out news and events on the topic.

We invite all who are interested to join us to make the project a success.
