Norway's country report on the state of biodiversity for food and agriculture. Executive summary
MetadataShow full item record
Biodiversity underpins food security, ecosystem resilience, coping strategies for climate change, adequate nutritional requirements and the management of biological processes needed for sustainable agricultural production. To achieve sustainable food production and ensure environmental sustainability, agricultural, forest and marine production systems need to focus more on the effective conservation and management of biodiversity and ecosystem services. This requires a comprehensive understanding and enhanced use of the role of biodiversity, genetic resources and their ecosystem functions. Norway’s country report on the state of biological diversity for food and agriculture addresses these issues, and by doing so, also contributes to the preparation of FAO’s report on the state of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture.
