The role of genetic diversity, traditional knowledge & restoration of native plants

Mon December 2014

Watch this Discussion Forum on the first day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2014, in Lima, Peru, during COP20. The diversity of plants (specifically genetic resources), knowledge and partnerships play crucial roles for adaptation and resilience to climate change. Landscapes and communities also play an important part in sustaining genetically diverse native crops and trees for adaptation. During this session key findings are presented on the role of crop diversity, traditional knowledge and linkages between traditional knowledge and science to innovate for adaptation.
