Target 2

By 2020, conserve in either medium or long term conservation programmes or facilities the genetic diversity of at-risk cultivated plants and farmed and domesticated animals and their wild relatives, and forest trees.
 

Target 3

By 2030, benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources for food and agriculture and associated traditional knowledge are fairly and equitably shared, including by promoting appropriate access to genetic resources for food and agriculture, technology transfer and funding, thereby contributing to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity for food and agriculture.
