6:00AM EDT - 8:00AM EDT


In the run-up to the UN Food Systems Summit in September 2021, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the International Network of Mountain Indigenous Peoples (INMIP) are organizing a webinar series to bring the voices and knowledge of Indigenous farmers around the world into the debate on resilient food systems.

The event will be live-streamed from Indigenous communities in mountainous and semi-arid regions of Perú, Kenya, India, and China, and you will hear from Indigenous farmers, elders, women and youth about their experiences and policy recommendations directly from their landscapes.

Hear from Indigenous farmers about their experiences using native crops and seeds to create resilience in the face of crisis, and how smallholder farming may hold the key to transforming our global food system. The featured communities include China and Lepcha and Limbu communities, Eastern Himalayas (India).
