The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) is a strategic alliance of 64 members comprising governments, international organizations and private foundations that support a common mission: to achieve sustainable food security and reduce poverty in developing countries through scientific research and research-related activities in the fields of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, policy and environment. It was set up in 1971 under the co-sponsorship of the World Bank, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to mobilize science to benefit the poor.
European positions in the negotiations on the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) (hereafter the Treaty) were strongly influenced by developments in European agriculture during the last century. In particular since the 1960s, as a result of the creation of the European Community and its Common Agricultural Policy, the face of agriculture in Europe changed profoundly, characterized by major-scale increases in production, a strong increase in the use of external inputs at the farm and the development of a strong breeding industry making use of the latest technologies.
The Committee requested the Secretariat to invite the CGIAR Consortium Office to provide a document at this meeting to assist it in understanding better, those aspects of the Policy and Principles that might have implications for the implementation of the Multilateral System by the CGIAR Centers, including in relation to PGRFA under Development, and the application of the SMTA. The document, as received from the Consortium Office, is included in this working document.
This document summarizes the previous advice given by the Committee in 2012, including on possible processes or practical approaches to ensure the harmonious implementation of the Nagoya Protocol with the Multilateral System, and, in accordance with the request of the Committee, re-submits the issue of model provisions that may be inserted in national ABS legislation, for the further consideration by the Committee.
The document describes the recent developments in relation to the Convention on Biological Diversity, like the joint workshop held during the Second Meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee on the Nagoya Protocol in July 2012, and the developments in relation to the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, in particular the Ad Hoc Technical Working Group on Access and Benefit-Sharing for Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture held in Svalbard in September 2012.
This is the final report of the Second High-level Roundtable on the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (the “Treaty”) met on 21 June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on the occasion of the United Nations Summit for Sustainable Development (the “Rio+20 Summit”). The Round Table was co-hosted by the Governments of Brazil, Italy and Norway, and chaired by Mr. Mauricio Lopes, Executive Director of Research and Development of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa).
