From the summary
” Agricultural biodiversity is important for food and nutritional security, as a safeguard 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. Using examples and case studies from around the globe, the book explores current strategies for 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 for rural and urban populations, and societies in transition”
