Guardians of diversity: The network of genebanks helping to feed the world

As part of global efforts to achieve sustainable development and address climate change, a network of genebanks is working to conserve and increase the diversity of plant species that feed the world.

Over the past 40 years, CGIAR Research Centers have together built up the largest and most frequently accessed network of genebanks in the world. Coordinated by theĀ CGIAR Genebank Platform, the network conserves and makes available more than 773,112 accessions of crop collections that contribute to human diets.
