Event Description:

In this seminar we will examine why the management of biodiversity and ecosystems are important components in building sustainable food systems. You will hear from researchers working directly with communities practicing food production systems focused on biodiverse ecosystems. Drawing on research founded in communities in Brazil and Mexico in the context of current global movements for biodiversity and sustainability, you will learn about the unique challenges facing food system actors and how communities use agroforestry and other ecological principles of production of food to guide your work.
