Promoting Synergies and Reducing Trade-offs Between Food Supply, Biodiversity and Ecosystems Services (Joint Call between BiodivERs and FACCE-JPI)

Basic Information

Network BiodivERsA2
Aim of the joint call The need to balance the demand for food against the capacity to deliver it in a more sustainable way that can preserve biodiversity and a range of ecosystem services appears as one of the major challenges of our time. More specifically, the link between biodiversity and agricultural production needs to be reinforced, as biodiversity and agriculture are strongly interdependent. On the one hand, biodiversity is critical for agriculture, through species diversity and the delivery of ecosystem services essential for agriculture such as pollination and the maintenance of soil fertility.
