    Evaluation of the Benefit-sharing Fund second project cycle International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report outlines the main findings, conclusions and recommendations of the independent evaluation of the second project cycle of the Benefit-sharing Fund (BSF II) of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA). The evaluation focused on the 19 concluded projects funded between 2011 and 20151 under the first batch of BSF II. The evaluation covers the two funding windows of the second project cycle. The Operational Procedures for the use of resources under the direct control of the Treaty’s Governing Body stipulate that “at the conclusion of each project cycle of the BSF, a final evaluation should be conducted”. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess “the extent to which the concluded projects funded through the second cycle of the BSF have helped increase food security and community resilience among vulnerable farmers and the rural population in developing countries through the management and conservation of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA)”. The evaluation findings are presented in Chapter 3 of the Evaluation Report.

    Helping Farmers and Vulnerable Communities to Adapt to Climate Change and Strengthen their Food Security - GCP/GLO/407/EC 2021

    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.
