The final report of this Focus Group has been published.

Get all the information at a glance in the Genetic Resources factsheet.


Tasks:

  • Analysing the different types of agreements between the stakeholders in the field and the successful factors in existing cooperation.
  • Proposing models and strategies to motivate public and private stakeholders to engage in cooperation models.
  • Preparing a gap analysis indicating where new solutions for cooperation models need to be found.
  • Documenting priorities for further research actions: the main needs (ie, pre-breeding and breeding priorities) concerning the generation of knowledge in order to maximise intra and inter-specific variation for the benefit of agriculture and of society at large.
  • Identifying the priorities for areas of work for the different stakeholders in order to maximise intra and inter-specific variation for the benefit of agriculture and of society at large.
  • Finding ways to promote the use of locally adapted and under-utilised crops, varieties and breeds;
  • Suggesting ways to broaden the genetic basis used in plant and animal breeding so as to strengthen the development of varieties and breeds particularly adapted to social, economic and ecological conditions, also in marginal areas suggest potential projects of practical operational groups and other project formats to test new methods for advancing cooperation in the area of Genetic Resources.
