Protecting biodiversity while ensuring food security for people is one of the major challenges of our time.
Human intervention in nature affects biological diversity, with traditional agriculture playing a central role. Land use change, pesticides and disease control measures lead to a drastic decline in various plant and animal populations.
How can we strike a balance between biodiversity conservation and food security? What conflicts do we face in addressing this challenge?
MULTIPLIERS students in Germany will meet experts active in the fields of (organic) farming and biodiversity research in order to get to know multiple perspectives and possible solutions.
