The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and Royal Botanic Gardens Kew are hosting a four-part virtual workshop about Indigenous Peoples’ food systems, biocultural heritage and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This virtual workshop will bring together a range of actors, including UK academics from humanities and botanical sciences, agri-food sectors, action-researchers, indigenous experts and FAO. It aims to enable equitable dialogue between diverse actors and disciplines.

The results will be used to advocate the importance of Indigenous food systems for biodiversity conservation, climate resilience, food security and the SDGs, in global policy processes.
