FAO's Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS), is an international partnership initiative that aims to identify, revitalize and promote international recognition of unique traditional agricultural systems around the world together with their agricultural biodiversity, cultural diversity and knowledge systems, and the contribution they can make to food and livelihood security of family farmers and indigenous communities. The dynamic conservation of Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems is an innovative strategy to empower small holder farmers, indigenous peoples and local communities and thus enhance the local and global benefits derived from such systems for the benefit of humankind. Therefore GIAHS program intends to include more systems and sites, covering more farming communities, in order to scale up innovative ways for adapting agriculture to climate change, while at the same time creating economic benefits from the conservation of agricultural biodiversity so that nature and people can prosper together.
This video provides an introduction to GIAHS and takes you on a journey through some of the GIAHS sites around the world.
