New educational materials for International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture
The learning module, available in English, French and Spanish, aims to explain the Treaty in the context of other international agreements and how to use its Standard Material Transfer Agreement (SMTA) to exchange crop diversity. It was developed by Bioversity International and sponsored by the CGIAR System-wide Genetic Resources Programme and the CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme.
