Can Preserving Crop Biodiversity Save the World?

The Crop Trust’s Executive Director, Marie Haga, works to make seed banks sexy!

“Marie Haga of the Global Crop Diversity Trust is not exactly a household name, except maybe in Norway, where she’s served since the 1990s in various diplomatic posts; nor is the non-profit organization she heads. But her job is to safeguard as much of the world’s plant materials as possible. She also needs to secure a steady stream of funding for thousands of plant gene banks so they can withstand drought, famine, and war. She knows it is not an easy task.”
