Identifying and addressing knowledge gaps in agrobiodiversity






The development organizations Hivos and Oxfam Novib are currently developing a knowledge programme on sustainable agriculture and biodiversity management.  The aim of this trajectory is to identify and address knowledge gaps on biodiversity conserving agricultural production that can reduce risks and can improve the livelihoods of rural people living in poverty.

The draft report of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, produced with and based on an assignment of Hivos and Oxfam Novib can be found clicking on Knowledge mapping, draft report Sept 2011 and here a link to its Annexes.
The report provides a ‘status of knowledge’ on agricultural biodiversity, small holder farmers and adaptive capacity in the context of resilience and transformations.

Stockholm Resilience centre would highly appreciate your input, comments and suggestions on the draft.
Its open for input up to 15 October and comments should be sent to Pernilla Malmer
