Norway to upgrade the 'Doomsday Vault'

    The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is where the world’s seeds are stored so they can be kept safe in a possible “Doomsday scenario”.

    The first withdrawal was made after a Syrian seed bank was destroyed in 2015 and researchers requested samples of some of the seeds that were lost.
