    Abstract United Nations University (UNU) has been collaborating with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) since the inception of the Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS) initiative in 2002 through research on agricultural diversity (agrodiversity) worldwide. With headquarters in Japan, UNU has focused on academic research and made policy recommendations to encourage the development of GIAHS, particularly in East Asia. This publication documents UNU’s work thus far with local communities and various stakeholders on the road to GIAHS designation to conserve valuable agri-cultural heritage systems.
