First International Agrobiodiversity Congress (IAC2016) organized during 6–9 November 2016 at New Delhi was a watershed event in the field of agrobiodiversity. For the first time ever, an international scientific meeting dedicated to deliberate and discuss on conservation and use of agrobiodiversity in all its forms (plant, animal, aquatic, microbial and insect genetic resources relevant to food and agriculture) was organized. Objective of the first International Agrobiodiversity Congress (IAC2016) was to provide a platform to all the stakeholders engaged in genetic resource conservation and management to deliberate on thematic issues of global importance, with major emphasis on rational and effective use of agrobiodiversity for food, nutritional and environmental security. As many as 900 delegates belonging to 60 countries participated in Congress.
