Project description

Exploring ways to support agricultural biodiversity

Agricultural biodiversity provides everything humans need to survive – food, shelter, clothing, fuel and medicines, as well as vital ecosystem services. Its sustainable management is therefore crucial, not only for providing for people’s basic needs but also as a means of adapting to climate change. Small farmers play an important role in maintaining agricultural biodiversity but don’t get remunerated for this service. To tackle this problem, the EU-funded ECO-BROKER project aims to reconnect food chain players and civil society with conservation values. It will do this by exploring innovative business models that generate economic benefits through participatory agro-biodiversity management.
