    A primary obstacle to mainstreaming biodiversity in sustainable food systems is the lack of a consistent way for governments, the private sector and other decision-makers to assess agricultural biodiversity . Throughout its six years of experience in Brazil, Kenya, Sri Lanka and Turkey, the Biodiversity for Food and Nutrition Initiative (BFN Project) has pioneered a partner-based methodology using indigenous food biodiversity .   Two Philippine-based international agencies co-organized a multisectoral workshop on biodiversity in food and agriculture in Thailand. The Multisectoral Workshop on Mainstreaming Biodiversity in Food and Agriculture was held by Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (Searca) and the Asean Centre for Biodiversity . Institutions are defined as a set of formal rules (for example, law and regulations) and informal norms, as well as their enforcement characteristics (North ); they also include processes guiding interac- tions between groups of people.
