Learning from the Earth: Indigenous youth in agrobiodiversity.

Plenaries, sessions and launchpads will be available in three languages: English, Spanish and French.

Agriculture is the main income source for most rural households in Asia and the Pacific region. However, the increasing biodiversity loss due to climate change represents a huge threat to people’s livelihoods, the consequences of which could be even more dangerous than the COVID-19 pandemic. To promote youth engagement in biodiversity protection toward achieving the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, this Youth Daily Show – led by Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) in collaboration with the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) – will explore what young Indigenous people working in agriculture are doing to preserve biodiversity
