BSF Projects - Second Cycle

All the 19 projects sponsored by the Benefit-sharing Fund in its second round of project cycle are currently in their active phase of implementation. Our implementing partners are helping ensure sustainable food security by assisting farmers to adapt to climate change in Asia, Africa, Near East and Central and South America through a series of high impact activities on the conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture.

In 2010, the Bureau of the Governing Body issued the second Call for Proposals under the Benefit-sharing Fund of the International Treaty. More than 444 pre-proposals were screened and around 120 project-proposals were appraised by an independent Panel of Experts. The Governing Body, at its Fourth Session, requested the independent experts to ensure that quality and technical merit determined the appraisal of project proposals.

Based on the recommendations of the Panel of experts, the most innovative proposals that could be replicated elsewhere were approved for funding by the Bureau of the Governing Body.

The nineteen projects approved for funding under the second cycle are substantially larger and more comprehensive than the eleven small scale projects supported in the first round of funding. The funds being disbursed in the second round multiply per ten those disbursed in the first round. There are more than 100 organizations involved in the projects execution in 31 developing countries.
