A change of mindset: policies that involve communities in the management of forests improve conservation of fruit diversity

This flyer gives good insight into the value of agricultural biodiversity, how it is maintained and used successfully in the field, and how it contributes to the livelihoods and well-being of many rural households. The UNEP/GEF-funded project identified these policy changes and the efforts and active role of the Village Forest Committees as a ‘good practice of diversity management’ that is selected for further strengthening and dissemination.
