29th September 2017: Threat to global food supplies

Today too much of our food supply is from too few species (plant or animal). A recent report by Biodiversity International, a global research and development organisation, identified that “Overreliance on too few varieties and species is leaving the food system unnecessarily exposed to shocks and stresses, as well as neglecting a high-impact solution to major health, environmental and food security challenges”. Enabling agrobiodiversity can “make vulnerable food systems more resilient and can reduce poverty and malnutrition, reverse environmental degradation and combat climate change.”
