Sustainable Development Goals Adopted

The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit formally adopts the post-2015 development agenda, including the Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals aim to accomplish three instrumental actions within the next 15 years: end extreme poverty; fight inequality; and fight injustice. The Crop Trust’s mission is embodied under Goal 2, Target 2.5:

“by 2020 maintain genetic diversity of seeds, cultivated plants, farmed and domesticated animals and their related wild species, including through soundly managed and diversified seed and plant banks at national, regional and international levels, and ensure access to and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge as internationally agreed “
