Which are the consequences of climate change in genetic biodiversity? How can local varieties and breeds help in future food production? Can the use of local plant varieties allow agricultural systems to better adapt? Could autochthonous breeds improve climate change mitigation strategies?
The speakers of the webinar “The role of rural biodiversity in climate change”, professors Bebeli Penelope and Bizelis Iosif, gave their answers to these questions on Wednesday, 27/01/21 via zoom and in live stream on facebook.com/Clicha.erasmusplus. Students and scientists participated in the online event.
