Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture





Meetings of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

The Commission normally holds one regular session each biennium. It may also decide to convene extraordinary sessions as necessary, subject to the approval of the FAO Council. Between 2001 and 2007, the Commission acted as the Interim Committee for the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

The Secretariat of the Commission prepares working and information documents for each session. In addition, the Secretariat occasionally commissions background study papers on selected matters of interest to the Commission.
