    Crop genetic resources contain the essential building blocks that are critical to food security. Their availability is a fundamental requirement for achieving further productivity increases and higher nutritional values through plant breeding. The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) is a global agreement in which 148 Member nations and the European Union advance the multilateral agenda for addressing the interlinked challenges of crop diversity preservation, global food security and climate change adaptation. The present project, signed with the European Union, centred on support for the third funding cycle of the Benefit sharing Fund (BSF 3), whose portfolio consisted of 22 approved projects targeting 45 developing countries. The BSF 3 projects focus on helping local communities to adapt to climate change and contribute to food security. BSF 3 featured two thematic Windows: Window 2 projects supported activities ensuring that local crop varieties of importance for food security are preserved, reintroduced, developed and maintained in farmers’ fields through on farm conservation, while Window 3 projects focused on the development and exchange of value added information on plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA) through scientific research and studies.
