CGRFA
The fourteenth session of the FAO Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (CGRFA 14) will be held from 15-19 April 2013, at the FAO Headquarters, in Rome, Italy. It will be preceded by a special information seminar, to be held on 13 April 2013, on biodiversity for food and agriculture.

The special information seminar aims to offer the opportunity for an exchange of views on the status and contributions of biodiversity to food and nutrition security, human well-being and sustainability, and on the challenges to biodiversity conservation and sustainable use. Participants will also reflect on the value of biodiversity for food and agriculture in all its different forms, and address challenges related to the preparation of the first ever report on The State of the World's Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture.

The CGRFA is expected to review implementation of its Multi-Year Programme of Work 2013-2021 and adopt a strategic plan 2014-2021 to that regard, and address a series of issues, including: biodiversity for food and agriculture, including preparation of The State of the World's Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture and relevant international targets and indicators; a roadmap on climate change and genetic resources for food and agriculture; the need and possible options for access and benefit-sharing arrangements for genetic resources for food and agriculture; biodiversity and nutrition; forest genetic resources, including the draft report on The State of the World's Forest Genetic Resources; animal genetic resources, including a review of the Funding Strategy for the implementation of the Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources and preparation of the second report on The State of the World's Animal Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture; aquatic genetic resources, including preparation of The State of the World's Aquatic Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture; micro-organisms and invertebrates; plant genetic resources, including review of implementation of the second Global Plan of Action for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, draft genebank standards and review of cooperation with the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture; cooperation with other international instruments and organizations; and the CGRFA status and mode of operation.
