IFPRI Meeting: no meeting report yet. But the comment says germplasm flows in danger from: “…the result of unintended consequences from the global treaties …”. They were not unintended consequences. The Plant Treaty was a botched job and was always going to be so, as I repeatedly pointed out to everyone the their dog, including a trip to Beltsville at my own expense to tell USDA what was going to happen (as it then did). The US wanted the treaty too much, to reverse the CBD acceptance of national sovereignty over everything. Out of the frying pan into the fire.
