FAO
Highlights for Friday, 23 October 2009

Delegates to the twelfth regular session of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (CGRFA-12) met at 5:00 pm on Friday to continue discussions on the Commission's mode of operation, including its draft rules of procedure and the date and place of the Commission’s thirteenth regular session. They also examined and adopted the meeting’s draft report and its appendices, heading-by-heading and sub-heading by sub-heading. After examining the text and suggesting minor amendments, delegates adopted the report late in the evening. Chair Mozafari then thanked the Secretariat for organizing the session and for working “day and night” to accomplish the tasks assigned to it, highlighted the importance of genetic resources for their central role in achieving food security, combating hunger, developing the agricultural sector, increasing livelihoods and promoting human health; and wished all delegates safe travels home. Chair Mozafari gaveled the meeting to a close at 9:21 pm.
