Global Crop Diversity Trust (Crop Trust)

Platz der Vereinten Nationen 7, 53113 Bonn


The Global Crop Diversity Trust (Crop Trust) is a non-profit international organization that is dedicated to conserving and making crop diversity available for use globally, forever and for the benefit of everyone. Our work supports adaptation of our food systems to the climate crisis, ensures better nutrition and health and provides the basis for sustainable agriculture. Our vision is to ensure the conservation and availability of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture in perpetuity, with a view to achieving sustainable agriculture and global food and nutrition security.

The Crop Trust is recognized as an essential component of the funding strategy of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

The need to conserve crop diversity within a rational, efficient global system has been recognized in various international agreements, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Crop Trust’s work responds to this urgent call to action. We fund the world’s most important genebanks from our Crop Diversity Endowment Fund, which is at the heart of our task, but our work does not end there. We also address gaps in the global system for the conservation of crop diversity through projects that closely complement the work funded by the endowment.
