THE STATE OF IN SITU

THE STATE OF IN SITU MANAGEMENT has advanced significantly, especially outside protected areas. Major trends and developments since the first SoW report was published are summarized below: • a large number of surveys and inventories of PGRFA have been conducted; • the in situ conservation of PGRFA (in particular CWR) in wild ecosystems still occurs mainly in protected areas. Less attention has been given to conservation elsewhere. There has been a significant increase in the number and coverage of protected areas; • CWR have received much more attention. A global strategy for CWR conservation and use has been drafted, protocols for the in situ conservation of CWR are now available and a new Specialist Group on CWR has been established within SSC-IUCN; • while many countries have reported an increase in the number of in situ and on-farm conservation activities, they have not always been well coordinated; • there has been little progress on the development of sustainable management techniques for plants harvested from the wild, which are still largely managed following traditional practices; • the last decade has seen an increase in the use of participatory approaches and multistakeholder teams implementing on-farm conservation projects; • a number of new tools, especially in the area of molecular genetics, have become available and training materials have been developed for assessing genetic diversity on farm; • new legal mechanisms enabling farmers to market genetically diverse varieties, coupled with legislation supporting the marketing of geographically identified products have provided additional incentives for farmers to conserve and use local crop genetic diversity in a number of countries; • significant progress has been made in understanding the value of local seed systems and in strengthening their role in maintaining genetic diversity on farm; • there is evidence that more attention is now being paid to increasing the levels of genetic diversity within production systems as a means of reducing risk, particularly in the light of the predicted effects of climate change. 2.6 Gaps and needs An analysis of the country reports, regional consultations and thematic studies identified a number of gaps and needs for the improvement of in situ conservation and on-farm management of PGRFA. While the major issues identified in the first SoW report remain (lack of skilled personnel, financial resources and appropriate policies) a few new needs have also been identified: • the draft global strategy on the conservation of CWR needs to be finalized and adopted by governments as a basis for action; 86 • there is a need to strengthen the ability of farmers, indigenous and local communities and their organizations, as well as extension workers and other stakeholders, to sustainably manage agricultural biodiversity; • there is a need for more effective policies, legislation and regulations governing the in situ and on-farm management of PGRFA, both inside and outside of protected areas; • there is a need for closer collaboration and coordination, nationally and internationally, especially between the agriculture and environment sectors; • there is a need for specific strategies to be developed for conserving PGRFA in situ and for managing crop diversity on farm. Special attention needs to be given to the conservation of CWR in their centres of origin, major centres of diversity and biodiversity hotspot areas; • the involvement of local communities is essential in any in situ conservation or on-farm management effort and traditional knowledge systems and practices need to be fully taken into account. Collaboration between all stakeholders needs to be strengthened in many countries; • there is a need in all countries to develop and put in place early warning systems for genetic erosion; • greater measures are needed in many countries to counter the threat of alien invasive species; • strengthened research capacity is required in many areas and, in particular, in taxonomy of CWR and conducting inventories and surveys using new molecular tools; 45

46 CHAPTER 2 • specific research needs relating to on-farm management or in situ conservation of PGRFA include: • studies on the extent and nature of possible threats to existing diversity on farm and in situ; • the need for better inventories and characterization data on land races, CWR and other useful wild species, including forages, in order to better target in situ conservation action; • studies on the reproductive biology and ecological requirements of CWR and other useful wild species; • ethnobotanical and socio-economic studies, including the study of indigenous and local knowledge, to better understand the role and limits of farming communities in the management of PGRFA; • studies of the effectiveness of different mechanisms for managing genetic diversity and how to improve them; • studies of the dynamic balance between in situ and ex situ conservation. What combination works best, where, under what circumstances and how should the balance be determined and monitored; • studies on the mechanisms, extent, nature and consequences of geneflow between wild and cultivated populations; • further research to provide information to underpin the development of appropriate policies for the conservation and use of genetic diversity, including the economic valuation of PGRFA.
