This event will showcase the experiences of Southern farmers and activists in using agrobiodiversity conservation and an ecosystems approach to small-scale farming as key climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. They will pay special attention to participatory in-situ seed conservation and enhancement work; organic production; seed and gene banking; and time-tested natural resource management practices that are enhancing biological diversity in the face of increasingly unpredictable and extreme weather.
