    Biodiversity is the foundation of ecosystem services to which human wellbeing is intimately linked. Biological resources are the pillars that support agriculture and mankind’s capacity to feed itself. The conservation and the sustainable use of biological diversity in agriculture are key to the long term sustainability of our food systems, and are therefore a global responsibility. The FAO Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform adopts a systemic and holistic approach to biodiversity mainstreaming, fostering and highlighting the synergies between FAO’s work on biodiversity and connected areas, including agroecology, indigenous peoples, incentives for ecosystem services, agrobiodiversity, low carbon agriculture, nutrition, sustainable rice production, and pollination, among other relevant subjects. The goals of the FAO Biodiversity Mainstreaming Strategy include a) sustainable use of biodiversity through landscape and ecosystem approaches, b) conserve, enhance and restore biodiversity and ensure the continued provision of ecosystem services, c) promote sustainable food and agriculture systems that integrate biodiversity considerations throughout value chains and d) enhance the contribution of biodiversity, and associated indigenous and local knowledge, to food security and nutrition, ending poverty, and safeguarding resilient livelihoods. Regional consultations are being organized during the second semester of 2019 as part of the preparation of the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Strategy. The Regional Consultative Meeting on Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors in the Near East and North Africa Region (NENA) is part of this process, and is being organized by FAO in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment of Jordan.

Founded in late 2007 by FAO’s Agricultural Development Economics Division, this initiative aims at bridging the knowledge divide and at strengthening the interactions among professionals with different cultural backgrounds and affiliations. This booklet celebrates the milestone of 2 years of successful online discussions: 'FSN Forum - Knowledge Sharing for Improved Food Security and Better Nutrition - Two Years of Online Discussions' it presents the main features and outcomes of 44 online discussions held from 2007 to 2009, divided in four themes: • Food Security and Nutrition Policies, Analysis and Information • Nutrition • Cross-Cutting Issues • Agriculture, Natural Resources Management and Biodiveristy

    Report on the High-Level Regional Dialogue on the Mainstreaming of Biodiversity in the Agricultural, Forestry and Fisheries Sectors (DRANIBA)
    Towards the mainstreaming of biodiversity in food systems and agricultural, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture production processes in Latin America and the Caribbean
    2019
    Also available in:

    Achieving food and nutrition security for all people intrinsically links to the maintenance of biodiversity. Therefore, increasing sustainable production of healthy, nutritious and safe food requires mainstreaming biodiversity use and conservation criteria within crops, livestock, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture production systems. This cannot be achieved without the active participation and commitment of all productive sectors and different actors within the food system, from producers of different sectors and sub-sectors to consumers. This report presents the recommendations, conclusions and action plan emerged from the High Level Regional Dialogue on the Integration of Biodiversity in Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DRANIBA) in Latin America and the Caribbean, organized by FAO and the Government of Mexico in October 2018, within the framework of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity. Delegates from different productive sectors representing eleven countries of the region, and representatives from international and cooperation agencies, civil society and academia, reviewed case studies and discussed issues related to biodiversity mainstreaming in the agricultural, livestock, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture sectors. DRANIBA brought attention to stakeholders’ efforts in promoting the international agreements related to biological diversity and will contribute to COP-14 and its follow-up phases.
