As an observer of International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA), the international science and technology ethics working group of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) participated in the ITPGRFA webinar at 15:00 on May 5, and broadcast the meeting live through CBCGDF media.


The objectives of ITPGRFA are the conservation and sustainable use of all plant genetic resources for food and agriculture and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of their use, in harmony with the Convention on Biological Diversity, for sustainable agriculture and food security.


Dr. Kent Nnadozi, Secretary General of ITPGRFA, chaired the meeting. In the meeting, Mr. Francisco Lopez of FAO presented the new Educational Module on the Multilateral System of Access and Benefit-sharing. Mr. Marco Marsella provided an update on the implementation of the Global Information System, its portal and the revised Programme of Work. Dr. Daniele Manzella analyzed between Global Information System and Digital Sequence Information (DSI) and reported on Convention on Biological Diversity(CBD) DSI policy options. Ms. Adriana Alercia presented a report on documentation and descriptors of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. And Mr. Tobias Kiene of FAO shared information on the national reporting mechanism under the International Treaty and provided an overview of the Report of the Compliance Committee to the Ninth Session of the Governing Body.


CBCGDF has always been committed to promoting China's accession to ITPGRFA. Through the live broadcast of ITPGRFA webinar, we hope to expand international cooperation, so as to enrich the genetic resources of China's agricultural production.
