    Evaluation of FAO’s work in Genetic Resources 2016

    Genetic resources for food and agriculture (GRFA) include the plant, animal, aquatic, microbial, forest and other genetic resources of relevance to agriculture, farming and food systems. GRFA are essential to global food production, especially considering the growth in population and consumption expected through 2050. They are the raw materials that farmers, herders, fishers, foresters, breeders (conventional as well as through biotechnology) and researche rs rely upon to improve the quality and the amount of food produced. In addition, GRFA provide the building blocks for developing new materials that are adapted to changing climates or novel environments and production demands. The evaluation sought to answer two overarching evaluation questions: i) How effectively has FAO guided policies and approaches to sustainable use of genetic resources, especially at country level? and ii) What impact has FAO’s technical and capacity devel opment work had on member countries and institutional stakeholders?

    The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture is an FAO international instrument that promotes the conservation and sustainable use of agricultural biological diversity. Through this legally binding treaty, Member Countries can easily exchange genetic material through facilitated access to the largest global pool of genetic diversity for food security, sustainable agriculture and climate change adaptation. The Treaty ensures that farmers, plant breeders and scienti sts have access to plant genetic resources and share the benefits, including financial resources, derived from conservation, research and breeding of those materials.

    Genetic Resources for Food Security and Nutrition 2015
    Conserving genetic resources for food and agriculture and promoting their use in support of global food security and sustainable development for present and future generations. Genetic resources for food and agriculture (GRFA) –the diversity of plants, animals, aquatic resources, forests, micro-organisms and invertebrates – are the strategic reservoir on which all our food production systems depend.
