In her opening speech, H.E. Ambassador Tambo, highlighted that “2014 marks the end of an important decade for the Trust, and the food and agriculture global community; it has been a decade of ensuring conservation and availability of diverse crops for the world. We acknowledge the leadership of the Governing Body of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, and the commitment of Governments that have made resources available for the Fund”.

During the event, a presentation was delivered on the Crop Trust’s mission and its achievements, including the iconic Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the eternal ice of Spitsbergen in northern Norway, which serves as the ultimate safety back-up for the world's agricultural seeds.  Statements were made by members of the African Group as well as representatives of FAO and other partners.
