1. Governance and management of food production systems 2. The provision of essential ecosystem services; food security; human health 3. Biodiversity conservationThis portfolio of work relates to FDA's mission in better understanding the geographical genomic diversity of foodborne pathogens in the environment (e.g.

water) and how that information can shape policies related to the use of water within food production systems.

Ultimately, an increase in sampling and sequencing foodborne isolates in the environment can help improve food safety initiatives through preventive controls and reducing contamination events.

FDA's intent with this grant is to increase the sampling, sequencing, and sharing of foodborne pathogen data in the environment, thus providing the international community with a valuable resource that can ultimately help improve global public health.
