International Seed Federation (ISF)

Date and Time
20 May 2008 13:15 - 14:45

Ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 9)

Experts will explain in a few presentations how genetic resources are used and biodiversity is generated, in other words how plant breeding and biodiversity go hand in hand. Using examples they will illustrate how genetic resources for food and agriculture have moved around the world and the resulting interdependence between nations. The event will be wrapped up by a panel discussion on rising issues.
