    1. 1. Bioversity International 40th Anniversary M. Ann Tutwiler, Director General
    2. 2. 22 Our Vision: Agricultural biodiversity nourishes people and sustains the planet Our Mission: Deliver scientific evidence, management practices and policy options to use and safeguard agricultural biodiversity to attain sustainable global food and nutrition security BioversityInternational/P.Lepoint
    3. 3. Challenges: • Reduce double burden of malnutrition • Increase productivity and reduce risk • Adapt to changing climate • Address shrinking diversity Credit:BioversityInternational/A.Gupta
    4. 4. Challenge: reduce double burden of malnutrition • Globally over twice as many people suffer from micronutrient deficiencies as from hunger • Number of overweight adults in developing countries tripled between 1980 and 2008
    5. 5. Solution: diversify diets Low-income consumers have access to and eat diverse, affordable, nutritious diets • Improve nutrition through a ‘whole-of-diet’ approach • Mainstream nutrition into value chains • Develop nutrition-sensitive agricultural production systems BioversityInternational/P.Bordoni
    6. 6. Challenge: increase productivity and reduce risk • Over 30% of the world’s land is degraded • 10-16% of global harvest is lost to pests and diseases annually
    7. 7. Solution: diversify production systems Farmers and rural communities increase productivity, enhance resilience and improve agricultural ecosystems, forests and landscapes • Farm households use agricultural biodiversity to increase yields, reduce losses and manage risks • Rural communities benefit from managing diversity in forests • Rural communities integrate agricultural biodiversity into landscapes to improve ecosystems BioversityInternational/Y.Morimoto
    8. 8. Challenge: adapt to changing climate • Up to 40% of the world will experience different climates, with new pests and diseases
    9. 9. Solution: diversify varieties and increase seed quality Farm households and rural communities use a diversity of quality seeds and planting materials • A diversity of seeds and planting materials enhance productivity, nutrition and adaptation • Formal and informal seed systems deliver high quality, diverse seeds and planting materials to farmers and rural households BioversityInternational/T.Rastogi
    10. 10. Challenge: address shrinking food diversity • Increasing crop yields and improving stress tolerance requires genetic diversity • Intensification of agricultural systems has substantially reduced biodiversity
    11. 11. Solution: safeguard biodiversity Policymakers, scientists and rural communities are safeguarding and monitoring priority agricultural biodiversity • Global treaties and conventions monitor agricultural biodiversity status and trends • National policymakers adopt policies and programmes to safeguard agricultural biodiversity and knowledge • Farm households, rural communities, scientists, breeders and policymakers have information on priority traits BioversityInternational/D.Astudillo
