CIHEAM's Contribution to Agrobiodiversity
The CIHEAM carries out a wide range of activities that contribute to achieving simultaneously food production, socioeconomic viability and resource conservation objectives.
Among them, the High Nature Value (HNV) farming, which refers to farming systems/farmlands that support a high diversity of wildlife species and habitats and/or species of conservation concern.
It maintains a diversity of land cover, including semi-natural vegetation, and a high density of features such as hedges, stone walls, terraces and ponds, covering over 25% of the European farmland.
