Summary
"This book reflects nearly ten years of multidisciplinary, participatory research work in West Africa, particularly in Ghana, as part of the United Nations University project on People, Land Management and Environmental Change (UNU/PLEC). It shows how farmers traditionally cultivate and conserve biodiversity while also using the land for food production. It highlights PLEC interventions for sustaining agrodiversity for rural livelihoods, and it provides lessons for policy and development planning." "Managing Agrodiversity the Traditional Way blends academic research and practitioner knowledge and contains valuable information for policymakers and practitioners alike. It should also appeal to university students and teachers, including those in agriculture, social sciences, biological science and other fields relating to environmental and natural resources management and sustainable development."--Jacket
