Title in English: Annual report 2016 Louis Bolk Instituut: Together with nature
Abstract / summary in English:
Jan Willem Erisman, Executive Director: "In 2016 the concept of nature-inclusive agriculture gained real momentum. All of us are searching for solutions towards more resilient, sustainable food systems based on healthy soils and environmental and landscape quality. Nature-inclusive agriculture is a sustainable approach to food production, and I am proud that the Louis Bolk Institute has nurtured this concept and its implementation. Another concept that is well-known by now is positive health. This concept focuses on people’s resilience, adaptive capacity and ability to selfmanage their own health and well-being.”
Other important projects presented in this annual reports are for example Reversing type 2 diabetes and Restoring nature while growing feed.
