Tonga & PNG join global food security treaty

Tonga will become the 134th contracting party of The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, which prioritises the continued availability of plant genetic resources that countries rely on to feed their people. This shall allow future generations to access the genetic diversity that is essential for food and agriculture. Papua New Guinea received technical support from the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Other contracting parties from the southwest Pacific include Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Palau and Samoa. The Treaty Secretariat of FAO, SPC and Pacific Island countries and territories work together in assisting other non-contracting parties in the region - which include Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu - to join the Treaty.
