Agrobiodiversity for food security, health and income IPGRI’s global project ‘Strengthening the scientific basis of in situ conservation of agricultural biodiversity’. "Managing Agrobiodiversity in Rural Areas". The Project concentrates spe-cifically on the sphere of agriculture and food security, aiming to enhance the long-term conservation and uti-lization of plant and animal genetic resources in support of agricultural production. In this endeavour, the Project develops concepts and strate-. project Strengthening the Scientific Basis of In-situ Conservation of Agricultural Biodiversity On-Farm (In-Situ Project). Here LI-BIRD collaborated with Nepal Agricultural Research Council and the International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI, later renamed Bioversity International). The project aimed at developing a framework of. Biodiversity or "biological diversity";It is a measure of the variety of organisms present in different ecosystems. This can refer to genetic variation, ecosystem variation, or species variation.

Agricultural biodiversity is a sub-set of general ise known as agrobiodiversity, agricultural biodiversity is a broad term that includes "the variety and variability of animals, plants and micro-organisms at the genetic, species and ecosystem levels that sustain the ecosystem structures, functions and processes in and around production systems, and that provide food.

The main focus is on plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA), as a key component of biodiversity. Whereas most studies so far have addressed the technical, ecological and genetic aspects of conservation in situ and on-farm, the current study focuses on the contribution of CBM as a methodology to empowerment, for strengthening the scientific.

Conservation of agrobiodiversity is an important component of sustainable agriculture and is important internationally. Ex-situ conservation in genebanks has been the dominant by: In Situ Conservation of Agrobiodiversity in drylands: Understanding and Solutions.
This section covers what participants learned about in situ conservation of agrobiodiversity – i.e., what are the causes of degradation, along with some of the solutions. General lessons and those for specific aspects of the problem/solution follow.
Plant genetic diversity is crucial to the breeding of food crops and is therefore a central precondition for food security. This important book contributes to our understanding of how international regimes affect the management of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture in developing countries.

In situ conservation 1. Sukriti Singh A BTBM/13/ 2. Conservation is an ethic of resource use, allocation, and protection. Its primary focus is upon maintaining the health of the natural world, its fisheries, habitats, and biological diversity.
In-situ conservation is the on-site conservation or the conservation of genetic resources in natural populations of plant or animal species, such as forest genetic resources in natural populations of Teagan species.
This process protects the inhabitants and ensures the sustainability of the environment and ecosystem. On-farm conservation is a form of in situ conservation but is significantly different from in situ conservation of wild species in natural or semi-natural ecosystems and should not be confused with it as has happened frequently in the past.
