New Book Release! Diversifying Food and Diets: Using Agricultural Biodiversity to Improve Nutrition and Food Security

diversifying food and dietsWith some of my Bioversity colleagues, Danny Hunter and Teresa Borelli, and colleague/chef Federico Mattei, we edited a new book entitled “Diversifying Food and Diets: Using Agricultural Biodiversity to Improve Nutrition and Health.” The book is part of the Issues in Agricultural Biodiversity series published by Routledge/Earthscan in collaboration with Bioversity International.

The book is highlights the current state of knowledge on the role of agricultural biodiversity in improving diets, nutrition and food security. Using examples and case studies from around the globe, the book explores strategies for improving nutrition and diets and identifies key research and implementation gaps that need to be addressed to successfully promote the better use of agricultural biodiversity for rural and urban populations and societies in transition.

The PDF version should be available after 6 months or so.
