Tengo el placer de hacerles saber que están a su disposición los informes correspondientes a las reuniones de los distintos Comités del Tratado, en particular, quisiera llamar su atención sobre las cuestiones que los Comités han examinado con vistas a su consideración por el Órgano Rector en su próximo quinto período de sesiones.
J'ai l'honneur d'attirer l'attention sur les rapports des réunions des récents comités du Traité et, en particulier, je voudrais attirer l'attention sur les sujets que les comités ont examinés en vue de leur étude par l’Organe Directeur lors de sa prochaine cinquième session.
I have the honour to draw attention to the reports of the meetings of the recent Committees of the Treaty and, in particular, I would like to draw attention to the subjects that the Committees examined in view of their consideration by the Governing Body at its forthcoming Fifth Session.
This chapter focuses on the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (the Treaty) and its potential impact on the ex situ conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA), reflecting the mandate and focus of the Global Crop Diversity Trust. Other important areas covered by the Treaty (e.g. in situ conservation, sustainable use or Farmers’ Rights) are covered extensively elsewhere and are not considered here.
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.
This document seeks the advice from the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy on the design and structure of the third call for proposals, in particular the annotated outline of the next call for proposals included in Annex 1 of this document.
This document provides information on the role of partnerships and collaborations in further streamlining the implementation architecture of the Treaty’s Benefit-sharing Fund. The document also sets out the rationale behind the development of these partnerships and the procedure followed for the identification and selection of partners.
At its Fourth Session, the Governing Body emphasized the importance of enhancing sustainable food security by assisting farmers to adapt to climate change, and for this purpose, requests the Secretary to develop a mid-term programmatic approach for the Benefit-sharing Fund, building upon the thematic focus of the Call for Proposals 2010 and in full alignment with the priorities adopted by the Governing Body and submit it to the Governing Body, at its Fifth Session, for approval. This document builds upon the thematic focus of the Call for Proposals 2010 and the lessons learned from the two rounds of the project cycle. It seeks the advice of the Committee on how to further develop the programmatic approach prior to its submission to the Governing Body.
