Description

Farmer collectives, research, policy and advocacy institutions in Central Asia and Asia-Pacific region called for an urgent change to the prevailing yield-for-immediate-profit structure of agriculture. Their proposal of a multi-functional diversified agri-food structure, hinging on Forgotten Foods to reap benefits for the planet, farmers and consumers, will guide a global manifesto set to be presented at the UN Food Systems Summit later this year.
