    Preparation of National Strategies and Action Plans for Animal Genetic Resources 2009
    The Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources, adopted in 2007, is the first internationally agreed framework for the management of biodiversity in the livestock sector. The guidelines for the Preparation of national strategies and action plans for animal genetic resources have been endorsed by the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. They are part of a series of guidelines prepared to support countries in the implementation of the Global Plan of Action. Preparing and implementing a national strategy and action plan will enable countries to translate the Global Plan of Action and the momentum it has created into an effective and comprehensive approach to the sustainable use, development and conservation of their animal genetic resources. It will enhance their efforts to increase food production and food security, reduce poverty and promote rural development. The guidelines provide a practical approach to preparing a national strat egy and action plan, informing the user how to get the planning process initiated, implemented and completed – culminating in government endorsement of the plan. The process can provide a means to better engage diverse interests and stakeholder groups within the livestock sector and beyond, and to coordinate the use of human and financial resources. It can enhance understanding among policy-makers and the general public of the importance of animal genetic resources, the multiple ro les and values of livestock, and the need to maintain the genetic diversity that will allow the livestock sector to adapt to the challenges of the future.
