Throughout its six years of experience in Brazil, Kenya, Sri Lanka and Turkey, the Biodiversity for Food and Nutrition Initiative (BFN Project) has pioneered a partner-based methodology using indigenous food biodiversity as a lens to address malnutrition, farmer livelihood resilience, and sustainability. To date, the initiative has documented and shared knowledge on 195 nutrient-rich, locally-adapted species that range from African leafy vegetables to Amazonian fruits. These species have the potential to supply valuable micronutrients such as Iron and Vitamin A, as well as ensure more resilient local economies and ecosystems. However, realizing these benefits requires a complex, multi-level approach that puts in place an enabling environment for the species’ conservation and sustainable use.

Bioversity International is a global research-for development organization. They have a vision – that agricultural biodiversity nourishes people and sustains the planet.
