During the last meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA) in Montreal, the international community recognised the relevance of our work once more! It was further highlighted that cross-cutting initiatives on biodiversity, food, nutrition and health are key to reach international development goals. Together with our partner Bioversity International, we were acknowledged for our work to foster the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020 and achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, in particular Target 14.
