Event Description:

In this webinar we'll explore why biodiversity and ecosystems management are important components for building sustainable food systems. You'll hear from researchers working directly with communities engaged in food production practices that are centred on biodiverse ecosystems. Drawing on community-based research in Brazil, Ecuador, and the Northwest Territories, you'll learn about the unique challenges facing food systems actors and how communities are using agroforestry and other ecological food production principles to guide their work.
