A Vision for Biodiversity to Ensure our Food Forever
A Declaration of Interdependence
Together we can save the agricultural diversity that underpins our food forever. All of us depend on food, no matter where we live, or what we do. Food can make the difference between life and death; maintain our health, or ruin it; protect our environment or contribute to its degradation. Our food system is underpinned by thousands of varieties of crops and breeds of livestock from around the globe. We are all interdependent on these fundamental resources. As citizens of the world, we hold these truths to be self-evident:
That no one should suffer from hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition;
That the productivity, nutritional quality and affordability of food depends upon the wise use of crop and livestock diversity;
That diversity in foods is essential to the enjoyment of eating;
That we must safeguard the diversity of resources for future generations;
That sharing of the benefits of this diversity is essential.
