World-renowned scientists, policymakers, development organizations, business leaders, and representatives from rural agricultural communities around the world will speak about the role of agrobiodiversity in the context of food consumption and production, and the urgent need to conserve it. Sessions will be engaging and interactive, providing a collaborative space to discuss cutting-edge scientific research and case studies of how agrobiodiversity can help to transform food systems.


 What is Agrobiodiversity?

Agrobiodiversity is the wealth of different plants, animals, and microbes that make up our agricultural systems. It is the menu of different foods we eat. It is the foundation of resilient, sustainable, and nutritious food systems. Learn more.

The 2nd International Agrobiodiversity Congress is convened by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, CGIAR, and the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, and organized in collaboration with a wide range of partner organizations
