Alimentos del pasado, alimentos del futuro - Invertir en especies abandonadas o infrautilizadas para conseguir sistemas alimentarios resilientes y saludables
23 marzo 2021

13:30 – 15:00 CET

La agrobiodiversidad es un activo estratégico para luchar contra la inseguridad alimentaria y nutricional, el cambio climático y la pobreza. Existen más de 5 000 cultivos alimentarios, pero los sistemas alimentarios mundiales siguen dominados por unos pocos (arroz, maíz y trigo). Mientras que especies abandonadas e infrautilizadas (NUS) se encuentran al margen de la investigación y el desarrollo, son dominantes en el conocimiento de los agricultores y las comunidades locales.

Las especies abandonadas e infrautilizadas se consumen casi exclusivamente en las zonas rurales. Gracias a sus mayores valores nutritivos, ahora están en auge y se convierten en alimentos de moda, sobre todo entre los consumidores preocupados por la salud.

Join us to talk about the potential of neglected and underutilized species for:

  • improving nutrition through nutrition-sensitive agriculture and diversified sustainable healthy diets
  • market opportunities and improved livelihoods and well-being of small scale producers, Indigenous Peoples and women
  • develop a "new frontier" to look at all those who are left behind in the knowledge generation processes, conservation of biodiversity and in the governance of research.

Learn about five new guidelines on investing in NUS value chains, developed by IFAD and the Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT, and innovative experiences from the Michelin starred international chef, Cristina Bowerman.
