Biodiversity is essential to maintain our food systems. Through decades of intensive land use the living space for wildlife is reduced. The disappearance of biodiversity is a major threat to the future of food, livelihoods, health and the environment. The climate crisis and a growing population worldwide are making the situation worse..
Organic farming can turn this scenario around and support biodiversity by offering living space to wild species, so they can grow in number and diversity. Organic farming also allows the soil to remain healthier, with room for soil fauna and less soil and water pollution. That way a natural balance is kept and biodiversity will continue to exist.
