    Abstract

    This publication is based on research carried out in West Africa, particularly in Ghana, undertaken within the UNUP project on 'People, Land Management and Ecosystem Conservation' (PLEC). It contains a number of papers on the topic of how farmers traditionally cultivate and conserve biodiversity whilst also using the land for food production, under the headings of: methodological approaches and knowledge systems; cropping systems and related case studies; and social dimensions of resource management. It highlights PLEC interventions for sustaining agrodiversity for rural livelihoods and identifies lessons for policy and development planning.
