This Bioversity International Initiative studies how agricultural and tree biodiversity can be better used within food production systems through: 1) Rural to urban agri-food chains - We investigate how agri-food value chains serve as a vehicle to connect producers who are often in rural areas, with consumers in peri-urban and urban areas; and 2) Local agri-food systems - We analyze how a whole-diet approach can contribute to improved nutrition and health among low-income urban and rural consumers.
