It is impossible to separate agricultural biodiversity from the human diversity that develops, manages and protects it – represented by thousands of human cultures both past and present. Indigenous and local communities inhabit the most diverse pockets of agricultural biodiversity – and they are responsible for nurturing the diversity and associated knowledge that sustains farming and food production systems throughout the world. Agricultural biodiversity is the legacy of 10,000 years of diverse human cultures that have shaped and interacted with the natural world.
