Following a workshop held in New Delhi, India, earlier this year, Bioversity International and partners are proud to present a new publication featuring the profiles of 20 custodian farmers from South and Southeast Asia.

These farmers have been identified as valued ‘custodians’ who “actively maintain, adapt and disseminate agricultural biodiversity over time and space, including the culture and institutions in which it is embedded, and the knowledge needed for its use and cultivation” (Sthapit et al., 2013).
