Traité international sur les ressources phytogénétiques pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture

Side event and white paper


This white paper emerged from an independent expert consultation commissioned by the Secretariat of International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, with support from the Government of Italy. The purpose of the consultation was to identify the lasting impacts and the institutional and policy implications of COVID-19 for genetic diversity and genomic research and innovation, with a special focus on open access, global equity and science capacity.

The Center for Science, Technology and Environmental Policy Studies at Arizona State University, the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) and Keystone Policy Center convened, led and facilitated the consultation.

The group of experts discussed the findings of the white paper at a side event to the Science Days for the UN Food Systems Summit 2021, on 7 July.

A second webinar will be convened and an announcement on this website will follow.
