    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.

    At the 13th Conference of the Parties (COP13) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), held in December 2016 in Cancun/Mexico, the Parties called for the mainstreaming of biodiversity across all agricultural sectors and adopted the Cancun Declaration on Mainstreaming the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity for Well-Being1. Concurrently, in late 2016, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) offered to act as the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform2 (the Platform), aiming at facilitating the dialogue and the exchange of information between governments and other stakeholders in regards to the sustainable use, management and restoration of biodiversity across agricultural sectors (including crop and livestock production, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture). As the first major activity of acting as the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform, FAO organized in Rome, Italy, the Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue in Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors (the Dialogue), between the 29th and the 31st of May 2018. The event was co-organized with the CBD Secretariat and brought together roughly 250 experts and representatives from diverse stakeholder groups. As a follow-up, FAO with the support of the Government of Rwanda and in collaboration with the African Union Commission and other partners including the CBD Secretariat, the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Regional Office for Africa is proposing to organize an African Regional Dialogue on Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors (the Regional Dialogue), which will take place from the 4 to the 5 November 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda.
