best practices for a sustainable development
Food Security development and sharing with knowledge networks is comprised of experts, scientists, researchers and technicians that address core topics to share and transfer knowledge on global food security, as well as identifying sustainable development policies and programs.
Food Knowledge activities are divided into five main themes for research and innovation:
sustainable management of natural resources;
improvement in the quantity and quality of agricultural production;
socio-economic dynamics and global markets;
sustainable development of small rural communities in marginal areas;
food consumption habits: diet, environment, society, economy and health.
Agrobiodiversity is achieved in greenhouses that have been cultivated with plants coming from different continents and different eras that tell stories through their shapes, sizes, colors and smells. The path through the greenhouses and open spaces becomes a sensory experience which connects us to both the earth and the food. A digital interface provides an additional means of information. The dialogue between human and plant generates reflection, curiosity, memories, desires and knowledge.
The result is the coming together of culture and nature, an expression of the many civilizations that, over time, have found in various places on the planet different ways to produce food and shape landscapes, with the aid of technical solutions.
Feeding a planet with ten billion people with conservation and a sensible use of resources without compromising the overall health of the ecosystem is achievable through research and practices such as those utilized in botanical gardens during the middle ages.
