Summary

Agricultural biodiversity is important for food and nutritional security, as a safety against hunger, a source of nutrients for improved dietary diversity and quality, and strengthening local food systems and environmental sustainability. This book explores the current state of knowledge on the role of agricultural biodiversity in improving nutrition and food security through improved dietary quality. Using examples and case studies from around the globe, the book explores current strategies to improving nutrition and diets and identifies key research and implementation gaps that need to be addressed to successfully promote the better use of agricultural biodiversity to improve nutrition and food security.
