Rationale

GSAP

Equitable access to, and benefit-sharing measures from, the use of genetic resources, including ILK, create incentives for the sustainable use of species and their conservation, and contribute to a fairer economy.

Actions

13.1. Share the benefits from use of genetic resources equitably among all users.

13.2. Apply and accredit ILK where appropriate to secure engagement in species conservation.

13.3. Safeguard all crop wild relatives through inclusion in seed banks and culture collections.

13.4. Halt the erosion of genetic diversity of wild relatives of domesticated animals, plants, and fungi.
