Abstract The focus of this study is on indicators for genetic resources, relevant for food and agriculture, for future food security and other functions of genetic resources or agro-biodiversity. The is one small area in the range of levels and sectors. It is recognized that there are many interrelationships between biodiversity and agriculture, between wild species and agriculture species and between ecosystem and genetic diversity. However, from the perspective of conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources for food and agriculture, there is a need for specific, quality (sets of) indicators, which help policy makers to monitor policies and for ‘early warning’ purposes. Genetic resources for food and agriculture have received some attention in international fora such as the CBD, the OECD and the FAO, but not as much as indicators for other sectors and levels of biodiversity
