Some news from International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

Guidelines for the optimal use of Digital Object Identifiers for germplasm samples

These guidelines could be freely accessed and download from the site of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. This latter is a FAO initiative for sharing knowledge and resources about  the conservation and sustainable use of all plant genetic resources for food and agriculture and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of their use, in harmony with the Convention on Biological Diversity, for sustainable agriculture and food security.

More information about the Treaty will come soon as they will join IGAD in Montreal, in particular some webinars and some other resources. If any of you is interested in following up this topic, please don't hesitate to contact me.
