Ex Situ (SDG 2.5.1) - Overview

The conservation of plant genetic diversity plays a crucial role in food security as recognized by the Second Global Plan of Action for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, and the Sustainable Development Goal 2, Zero Hunger, under its Target 2.5.

WIEWS provides access to official data on the implementation of the Second Global Plan of Action for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, and on the plant component of SDG indicator 2.5.1 Number of plant and animal genetic resources for food and agriculture secured in either medium or long term conservation facilities.

Information on plant genetic resources secured in genebanks (ex situ) can be viewed as metadata on this page. For accession-level information of the ex situ holdings use the advanced search.
