CGIAR genebanks safeguard some of the largest and most widely used collections of crop diversity in the world, critical to attaining global development goals to end hunger and improve food and nutrition security, which arguably gives their stewardship an imperative and prominence unsurpassed by any other single undertaking in CGIAR. The genebanks, as a key driver of international exchange of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA), are fundamental to delivering the CGIAR Strategy and Results Framework (SRF) and three System Level Outcomes (SLO) of reduced poverty, improved food and nutrition security, and improved natural resources systems and ecosystem services. Most directly, the genebanks, through this Platform, will ensure increased conservation and use of genetic resources (sub-Intermediate Development Outcome (sub-IDO) 4.4.) and contribute to achieving Targets 2.5 and 2.a of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
