    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report has been prepared by the Secretariat of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA) as a critical input to facilitate the design and development of the Global Information System (GLIS) in the context of Article 17 of the International Treaty regarding descriptors required to identify PGRFA. It contains the analysis of the two consultations conducted during 2015 on the minimum essential information (descriptors) required and other highly recomm ended data to be declared and aggregated through GLIS to facilitate access to scientific information about PGRFA. Both, the survey and the subsequent expert consultation collected useful views and information from Contracting Parties and stakeholders from all over the world. This document outlines the major findings on each of both consultations and also analyses some of the limitations and obstacles faced to devise the initial key set of mandatory descriptors. The strategic key set of descr iptors defined constitutes an essential step to uniquely identify PGRFA samples transferred under the Multilateral System of Access and Benefit Sharing and is critical to require a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to register distinct types of plant material from different types of holders in the Global Information System. Finally, it enumerates a series of technical issues and questions for further research and consideration during the early implementation of the first Programme of Work on the Global Information System.
