Crop Gene Bank: Summary
Although gene banks are important for food-secure future, most of them are
facing to a problem – a lack of secure funding. Thus, Cary Fowler said, “I can’t
name a single gene bank that operates on a secure, multiyear budget.” In Peru,
David Ellis also realized the same situation. In order to solving the budget
problem, the Global Crop Diversity Trust would apply an endowment from
governments, to avoid of crops extinction.
Cary Fowler said, “At any given time there is almost always something bad going
on in one of the gene banks around the world.” Actually, except the lack of
funding, gene banks have various threats. “Climate change is reality,” says
Valerie Saena Tuia, based on a number of gene banks destroyed by disasters
around Pacific. To avoid destroy of gene banks, Fowler established a seed bank
in Svalbard, but it is just an icebound warehouse.
Luis Salazar said, “No country has enough diversity to be self-sufficient.” So that
there are 135 countries joined the Treaty for Plant Genetic Resources for food
and Agriculture, and realized the world is independent. The international
standards of gene banks were set by FAO in 2014, but there were few
participants meet it. Fowler led assessment for long-term conservation twice, the
first time in 1996 and the second in 2010. The result was better in the second
assessment. For storage of seeds, cold storage can remain viable for 100 years,
but the price is too expensive, thus some developing countries such as India is
exploring liquid nitrogen method in order to cost less.
Axel Diederichsen mentions “The first priority is simply to keep the material
viable, then, labor permitting, we want to characterize the material – linking
physical traits to genes.” Likewise, Linda Collette says “with climate change, to
characterize crop varieties and wild relatives and involve breeders to develop
varieties.” Only storing is not enough to save gene banks.
There is a turning point of gene banks. “Although most gene banks were
created in the 1970s, the context in which they operate today is remarkably
different,” says Fowler. And Greene also says, “you will put your life on the line to
protect this material.”
