This is a collection of 14 papers addressing a range of issues that are important to consider as India develops its strategy for implementing the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA), and its multilateral system of access and benefit sharing in particular. The papers consider, among other things: flows of plant genetic resources into and out of India; the state of PGRFA conservation and use in India; the rationale for India’s deciding to ratify the ITPGRFA in the first place; whether or not there is legal space to implement the multilateral system in India; linkages between community seed banks and the multilateral system; linkages with efforts to implement the Convention on Biological Diversity in India; how the multilateral system can provide support for efforts in India to exploit crop diversity to adapt to climate change, and ultimately, based on the forgoing, as the name of the publication suggests, a road map for implementing the multilateral system in India.
