You are invited to a free panel discussion and reception on Wednesday, 2
November, focusing on the important role played by
<http://www.cwrdiversity.org/> Crop Wild Relatives and the global system of
genebanks in developing adaptation to the impacts of climate change.

Over the next decades the world is expected to experience climate change
that will likely bring about more extreme weather such as higher average
temperatures and more variable rainfall. This will impact most food crops in
tangible ways and in many cases agricultural yields are predicted to fall
significantly. Adapting agriculture to climate change is therefore an urgent
challenge of our time.

-45c7-88dd-da192fcd396f.jpgCrop Wild Relatives have a special role to play
and efforts are underway in Australia and around the world to conserve them,
and through prebreeding and evaluation, prepare materials for use by plant
breeders and farmers for adapting crops to climate change. These crop wild
relatives are threatened in their natural environment; they are also missing
in crop collections and therefore not yet generally available for use.
