EU-FAO to contribute to crop diversity in developing countries

According to recent updates by FAO, the EU is contributing €5 million towards the Benefit-sharing Fund of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. The Benefit-sharing Fund helps farmers in developing countries manage crop diversity for food security and climate change adaptation.
This is the single largest contribution made to the Benefit-sharing Fund since it was established in 2008. It will help to increase the capacity of smallholder farmers to manage traditional crops like potato, rice, cassava, wheat and sorghum.
