ABCG has prepared a report compiling the experiences and lessons learned on biodiversity conservation and food security from field work and the collective expertise of the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), Conservation Interna-tional (CI) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), three ABCG organizational members. The objective of the food security and conservation working group is to develop an integrated set of foundation-year activities that will begin to allow enhanced understanding of the conditions necessary for sustainable agriculture intensification to improve food security, and improved on-farm uptake of biodiversity-sensitive intensification practices.
