Farming for Biodiversity

As of: August 2018

Objective and activities

The project contributes to the implementation of CBD’s Strategic Plan Goal A and B by globally raising awareness of the importance of mainstreaming biodiversity into the agricultural sector and by building local capacity to promote the adoption of best practice examples. A global contest will enhance awareness by surfacing and disseminating solutions that effectively mainstream and increase biodiversity into agriculture. To provide the needed support to strengthen and scale these initiatives, a series of capacity workshops will empower local actors to raise awareness of the value of biodiversity and to conduct social marketing campaigns promoting behaviour change in support of the identified solutions. A learning platform will foster peer-to-peer exchange and will ensure lessons from the implementation of different solutions will be shared between different regions. To scale mainstreaming, results are shared at relevant processes and strategic partners involved throughout the project.
