CWR Policy Brief: Measuring the state of conservation of crop diversity

New international agreements on sustainable development and biodiversity conservation explicitly prioritize fully safeguarding the genetic diversity of crops and their wild relatives as well as domesticated animals by 2020.

BONN, GERMANY – 23 May 2016As the global community is gearing up to implement effective action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it is important to establish baselines and monitoring tools to keep track of our progress towards achieving these aims.

The Crop Wild Relatives (CWR) Project and the methods it has employed to map CWR diversity and identify priorities for conservation and collection could serve as a useful example of how this can be done. The Crop Wild Relatives (CWR) project in partnership with CIAT and the Millennium Seed Bank (MSB) have published a policy brief urging policy makers to take note. Download the policy brief now and find out more.
