Tree diversity for climate change adaptation and food system resilience

Nov 12, 2022 | 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM

The Egypt Hall


Tree diversity is crucial for the resilience of food production systems in the face of global change, which includes increasing human populations, declining agricultural productivity, climate change and extremes, and invasive species.
Join us to explore a new report, Conserving and using tree diversity for global climate change adaptation and food system resilience, by Lex A. J. Thomson, on how tree diversity can most effectively be conserved and used for smallholder livelihoods and food security in the face of a changing climate, and the role of collections-based R&D organisations in supporting these solutions.
