Bioversity International is unlocking the potential of wild edibles

Addressing global key challenges such as reducing hunger, malnutrition and obesity through dietary diversity and improved food security, Bioversity International is developing evidence and solutions for resilience and improved nutrition and health tailored for different groups, incomes, and ecosystems. Jointly with global partners, Bioversity is looking at nutrition and health through the unique lens of agricultural diversity in West, East and Southern Africa as well as Asia and Latin America, with projects that can be adapted to other regions. As part of this work, Bioversity International scientists Danny Hunter and Teresa Borelli highlight the issue of eroding wild edible species as well as the global trend of shifting away from traditional food systems in their joint article posted on the IUCN website.
