10th Session of the ITWG on Animal Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (2018)

27/01/2018 - 20/12/2018
Rome, Italy

Description

The 10th Session of the Intergovernmental Technical Working Group on Animal Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture will be held at FAO Headquarters in Rome from 27-29 June. The opening meeting will begin at 10:00 on Wednesday, 27 June 2018. The Session is being convened under the Regular Programme of the Organization. Simultaneous translations in Arabic, Chinese, English, French and Spanish will be available.

 

The Working Group was established by the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture at its Seventh Session in May 1997, in line with Conference Resolution 3/95. The Sixteenth Regular Session of the Commission in February 2017 decided that the Working Group should meet prior to the next Regular Session of the Commission. Issues to be addressed by the Tenth Session of the Working Group include:

 

The Commission also requested the Working Group to explore:

  • access and benefit-sharing
  • digital sequence information
  • the draft work plan for future work on sustainable use and conservation of microorganisms and invertebrate genetic resources as they are relevant to the animal subsector
  • the draft Revised Strategic Plan for the Commission (2018-2027).

The members of the Working Group and their Alternates, as elected by the Sixteenth Session of the Commission, are as follows:
Africa: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Kenya, Namibia, Tunisia

    • First Alternate: Zimbabwe
