Sustainable and resilient Indigenous Peoples’ Food Systems for improved nutrition

Disruptions in Indigenous Peoples’ food systems (IPFS) have caused profound changes in their dietary patterns. Loss of food biodiversity and increased consumption of processed foods lead to malnutrition, with indigenous women disproportionately affected.

This toolbox provides guidelines on how to design and assess food biodiversity and dietary diversity projects with local communities, with the aim of improving the diets and nutrition of Indigenous Peoples. It focuses on local food biodiversity, leveraging Indigenous Peoples’ knowledge, practices, languages, culture, and environment.
