In , a "working definition" of plant landraces was proposed: "a dynamic population(s) of a cultivated plant that has historical origin, distinct identity and lacks formal crop improvement, as well as often being genetically diverse, locally adapted and associated with traditional farming systems". Another definition, dating to , of the term landrace as used in botany (and by extension. Author: Muriel Lightbourne; Publisher: Routledge ISBN: Category: Law Page: View: DOWNLOAD NOW» This volume advances the claim that the FAO International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) adopted in is the only existing international agreement with the potential to promote food security, conservation of biodiversity and equity.
So, in situ and ex situ conservation (field, seed and in vitro collections), complementary conservation strategies, are being implemented in Europe and other continents in the world for plant genetic resources in general, and MAP species in particular. . The need to conserve and utilize plant genetic resources as a safeguard against an unpredictable future is well recognized. The prospect of dwindling plant genetic diversity, coupled with increased demands on these resources, has propelled them into the centre of global discussions on the environment and sustainable development. Table of Contents. 1. The Global Crop Commons and Access and Benefit-Sharing Laws: Examining the Limits of Policy Support for the Collective Pooling and Management of Plant Genetic Resources Michael Halewood, Isabel López Noriega and Selim 1: Setting the scene: countries’ interdependence on plant genetic resources for food and agriculture and the imperative of international.
plasm conservation and use will continue to depend, inter alia, on easy access to the genetic material. The recently approved International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture established a Multilateral System for facilitated access to germplasm of a number of crops. This includes vegetables such as. The PGRU, in collaboration with the Plant Exchange Office, must be prepared with a reasoned response to actual or potential restrictions to germplasm importation and exportation that may result from the Convention on Biological Diversity and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture of commitment of governments to ensuring that conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources continue to be key elements in the efforts to alleviate poverty, increase food security and provide a genetic diversity safety net for the future of agriculture. They also highlight the need to develop and.
