European Regional Focal Point for Animal Genetic Resources

Regional platform for the support of management, conservation and sustainable use of animal genetic resources

Publication of the draft of the Animal Genetic Resources Strategy

This strategy is a joint effort of the ERFP network. It was developed with support from the ERFP Steering Committee and ERFP working group experts, and revised and approved by the national coordinators with the aim of facilitating the implementation of the FAO Global Plan of Action in the countries of the European region. The strategy is in keeping with the priorities of the GPA and the European policy framework. It also presents a set of Key recommendations.

We hope that this strategy will contribute to minimizing the loss of livestock genetic diversity and thereby ensure the sustainability and resilience of the European livestock sector.
