Crop diversity and food security: Regional assessment to build capacities for resilience and sustainability

  • ICIMOD
  • Summary

The Far Eastern Himalayan Landscape is spread across the ecologically diverse and geologically fragile hill and mountain tracts of northwest Yunnan of China, northeast India, and northern Myanmar. It is home to more than 20 ethnic communities and their diverse traditions, languages, and cultures. The interactions between the rich biodiversity and diverse ethnic cultures have resulted in a rich body of indigenous knowledge on the utilization and conservation of a great variety of cultivated crops and wild edible plants. Such traditional uses and related indigenous local knowledge are important for social-ecological resilience and sustainability
