Eighth Session of the Governing Body to the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

The eighth session of the Governing Body to the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) will take place from 11-16 November 2019. The Session will be preceded by two days of regional and inter-regional consultations and other related events.

The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture was adopted by the Thirty-First Session of the Conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations on 3 November 2001. The Treaty aims to: recognize the contribution of farmers to the diversity of crops that feed the world; establish a global system to provide farmers, plant breeders and scientists with access to plant genetic materials; and ensure that recipients share benefits they derive from the use of these genetic materials with the countries where they have been originated.
