Convention on Biological Diversity COP16

Dates: 21 October – 1 November 2024
Location: Cali, Valle Del Cauca, Colombia


Agriculture is the biggest driver of biodiversity loss globally. Forests are cleared for food production, harmful chemical-intensive monoculture pollutes ecosystems, and extractive fisheries threaten ocean health.

To fight the biodiversity crisis, we need a radical transformation of our global food system. Farming practices such as agroecology, regenerative approaches and indigenous foodways can increase biodiversity and food security.
