    A regional workshop on “The application of AquaGRIS: the FAO global information system, to build national registries of aquatic genetic resources” is planned to take place from 6-7 June 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand. The workshop, co-organized by FAO and SEAFDEC, aims to: 1) enhance the awareness on the importance of having a good information baseline on the aquaculture species and related farmed types and wild stocks in order for a country/region to make information-based decisions on AqGR management and the sustainable development of the aquaculture sector; 2) enhance participants’ understanding of AquaGRIS and their capacity to create national registries through it; and 3) develop a strategy and plan for the creation and long-term maintenance of AqGR registries in the region and start, after the workshop, the process of creating national registries in a group of countries that will be selected during the workshop.

    This report summarizes the proceedings and outcomes of the “Regional Workshop for Europe and Central Asia on the Development of a Global Information System for Farmed Types of Aquatic Genetic Resources (incorporating a review of strategic priorities for a Global Plan of Action)” held from 5 to 8 October 2020. The final wrap-up session was held on 15 October 2020. This workshop, supported financially by the Government of Germany, was the fourth in a series of regional workshops held to generate feedback on the Registry of Farmed Types of Aquatic Genetic Resources (Registry) being developed by FAO in response to the findings of the first report on The State of the World’s Aquatic Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (SoW-AqGR) prepared under the guidance of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (Commission) and launched by FAO in 2019. As requested by the Commission, the workshop also sought feedback on an outline of a Global Plan of Action for Aquatic Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (GPA), as requested by the Commission. The workshop was held online over a period of five days, with sessions lasting between 60 and 120 minutes. The workshop was attended by National Focal Points for Aquatic Genetic Resources from Europe and Central Asia, officials from ministries, governmental organizations, research institutions and by representatives of regional aquaculture organizations. The objectives of the workshop were to promote standardized use of nomenclature and terminology in the description and categorization of aquatic genetic resources (AqGR), especially below the level of species (i.e. farmed types), to identify priority regional stakeholders who would benefit from and could contribute to an information system, such as the Registry, to evaluate the key elements of the prototype Registry using regionally relevant species and their farmed types and to review the strategic priorities and propose concrete activities under each of the four Priority Areas of the GPA.
