To manage agrobiodiversity, we need to measure it
The Agrobiodiversity Index is the tool that food system actors need to measure agricultural biodiversity and identify concrete actions to achieve diverse, sustainable and resilient food systems. The Agrobiodiversity Index will help decision-makers – including governments, companies and investors – measure the status of agricultural biodiversity and assess to what extent their commitments and actions are contributing to its sustainable use and conservation.
Agricultural biodiversity is essential for healthy diets, sustainable production and natural resources conservation
The Agrobiodiversity Index is the first tool that brings together data on diets and markets, production and genetic resources, analysing them under the lens of agrobiodiversity.
The Agrobiodiversity Index assesses the status of agricultural biodiversity and to what extent commitments and actions of different food system actors are contributing to its sustainable use and conservation.
ACCESS THE ANALYSES
