Posters 2010


The Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources provides an internationally agreed framework for the sustainable use, development and conservation of animal genetic resources for food and agriculture. The Global Plan of Action was adopted by 109 countries at the first International Technical Conference on Animal Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, held in Interlaken, Switzerland, in 2007. It was subsequently endorsed by all FAO member countries.


The main responsibility for implementing the Global Plan of Action rests with national governments, and to coincide with the International Year of Biodiversity, National Coordinators for the Management of Animal Genetic Resources were invited to prepare posters on their countries’ activities in implementing the Global Plan of Action. A number of international organizations whose work contributes to the implementation of the Global Plan of Action were also invited to contribute posters.
