WIEWS - World Information and Early Warning System on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture


More than 17,000 national, regional and international institutes and organizations engaged in the conservation and sustainable use of PGRFA are registered by FAO and assigned a WIEWS INSTCODE. The WIEWS INSTCODE is used worldwide in the exchange of information about germplasm conserved ex situ as unique identifier for the germplasm holding organization. A new WIEWS INSTCODE can be generated online by contacting the National Focal Point or [email protected].
