    Secondary Guidelines for Development of National Farm Animal Genetic Resources Management Plans - Management of small populations at risk 1998
    Also available in:

    In recognition of the importance of animal genetic resources (AnGR), and of the sizeable portion that is currently at risk of loss, and in keeping with FAO’s mandate and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) a special action programme for the Global Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources was launched by FAO in 1992. One of the objectives of this Programme is the development of Guidelines for country use. The Primary Guideline Document (FAO, 1996), mainly targeted towards policy ma kers, is designed to help countries get started to identify the main elements and objectives of an animal genetic resources management plan, and to outline the strategic policy directions required to fulfil these objectives. The Primary document is complemented and supported by four secondary documents targeted mainly at those that implement policy, administratively and technically, covering the following issues: characterization, livestock production systems description, active breed use and de velopment, and managing populations at risk to provide guidance for the management of areas identified in the primary document. These Guidelines looks at the specific aspects, options and techniques for the management of populations at risk.

    DAD-IS:2 - User’s Manual for National Coordinators for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources 1998
    Also available in:

    The Domestic Animal Diversity Information System (DAD-IS) is the key communication and information tool for implementing the Global Strategy for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources (AnGR). It is being developed first to assist countries and country networks, and also serves as the virtual structure for the Strategy. It will increasingly provide extensive searchable databases, tools, guidelines, refernces, links and contacts. DAD-IS is physically based at FAO, Rome, Italy, but acces sible from any country in the world via the Internet. The development of DAD-IS saves countries the cost of developing and maintaining such a system individually. Yet it virtually is an individual system, because the build-in security offers countries full control over the information they store, release and maintain with the system. DAD-IS objectives are to: - involve, co-ordinate and assist Governments, NGO's, training and research groups in all countries and international agencies operati ng within and across world regions; and - help achieve better management of all AnGR used for the production of food and agriculture in all countries, in accordance with the World Food Summit Plan of Action and the UN Convention on Biological Diversity.
