Objective. The objectives of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA, or the Treaty) are the conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA) and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of their use in harmony with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), for sustainable. Since the most important recent development in the field has been the creation of the multilateral system of access and benefit-sharing under the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, many of the chapters in this book will focus on .
The book offers a practical and feasible regulatory alternative to ensure the goal of fairness and equity is effectively and efficiently met. Through a legal analysis that also incorporates historic, economic and sociological perspectives, the book argues that genetic resources are not tangible resources but information. Measurement of the Benefits of Genetic Resources for Agricultural Production Various methods have been used to value genetic material. One fundamental problem arises from the fact that.

He International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture is a pivotal piece of re-cent legislation, providing a route map for the use of such resources for sustainable agriculture and food security. This book explains the different interests and views at stake between all players in the global food chain.
History. The first use of plant genetic resources dates to more t years ago, when farmers selected from the genetic variation they found in wild plants to develop their crops.
As human populations moved to different climates and ecosystems, taking the crops with them, the crops adapted to the new environments, developing, for example, genetic traits providing tolerance to conditions. This book is an edited compilation of papers from the Symposium on the Economics of Valuation and Conservation of Genetic Resources for Agriculture held in Rome in May It addresses some of the key issues involved in the estimation of the economic value of.
The diversity of genetic resources for food and agriculture (i.e. plants/crops, animals, aquatic resources, forests, micro-organisms and invertebrates) plays a crucial role in meeting basic human food and nutritional needs.
Conserving genetic resources is a means of safeguarding the living materials exploited by agriculture, industry, forestry, and aquaculture to provide food, feed, medicinals, fiber for clothing and furnishing, fuel for cooking and heating, and the food and industrial products of microbial activity.
Totally accessions of plant genetic resources has been preserved in the long-term genebank and the germplasm nurseries.(3) A total of accessions of plant genetic resources were.
Introduction “Plant genetic resources for food and agriculture” means any genetic material of plant origin of actual or potential value for food and agriculture. “Genetic material” means any material of plant origin, including reproductive and vegetative propagating material, containing functional units of.
Genetic resources are the substance of agriculture and food production, major economic enterprises in California.
