Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS) related to tea

The Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS) is a traditional agroecosystem made up of communities that have lived in an intricate relationship with their territory across generations while adapting to changes in society and the environment. It is recognized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Additionally, the system is resilient, characterized by remarkable agrobiodiversity, traditional knowledge, invaluable cultures and landscapes, sustainably managed by farmers, herders, fisherfolk, and forest people in ways that contribute to their livelihoods and food security.
FAO has designated a GIAHS related to tea in 3 sites in China, 1 site in Japan and 1 site in South Korea.
