The ABS Task Force and the Ex Situ Conservation Working Group have been working in the last years in the development of a Guidelines of Material Acquisition Agreements and Material Transfer Agreement for Genebanks.
The objective of these Guidelines is help Genebanks in the process to develop the agreements for material intended to be stored in a Genebank or employed for conservation, breeding or research. The lack of MTA and MAA is frequent in the operations of the Genebanks, with these Guidelines the ERFP aim to support the development of the genebanks activities and improve the ex situ conservation of the Animal Genetic Resources in the European Region.
