We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity

CIFOR-ICRAF explores the complex relationships between forests, nutrition, food security and the biological diversity that is critical to our planet’s survival.

Over 10 million species of animals, plants, fungi and microorganisms inhabit Earth. This diversity plays a key role in the maintenance of ecosystem good and services, healthy diets, housing and clothing, clean air and water, flood control, fertile soils and pollination. It also helps build resilience to unexpected crop failings, ecosystem collapse – and climate change.

With only a fraction of known species studied for their potential medicinal, agricultural or industrial value, the greatest value of biodiversity might still be unknown. CIFOR-ICRAF aims to raise awareness of the important role of biodiversity in food security and nutrition.

Up to 1 million species are at risk of annihilation, many within decades1
~9% of the world’s estimated 5.9 million terrestrial species do not have enough habitat for long term survival, without habitat restoration2
