FAO agricultural heritage systems: perspectives and opportunities.
Post-pandemic reconstruction offers an opportunity to change the path and invest in a global food system that is resilient to future shocks, promoting sustainable and diversified agriculture capable of driving sustainable growth and protecting natural resources. What is the development model we want to pursue? The conference FAO agricultural heritage systems: perspectives and opportunities is part of the activities organized within the framework of the initiative Terra Madre Salone del Gusto.
It aims to illustrate the objectives and potential of FAO’s GIAHS Programme for the sustainable development of rural areas, following the collaboration of Slow Food within the project Building capacity: Advanced international application course on GIAHS (Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems), co-financed by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) and involving the Department of Agricultural, Food, Environmental and Forestry Sciences and Technologies (DAGRI) of the University of Florence as leading beneficiary and the Polo universitario Città di Prato (PIN) as partner.
