Start Date: 1 October 2007 | End Date: 31 December 2011


This project aims to develop – in close consultation with representatives of the relevant networks, institutions and stakeholders – strategies for the efficient and effective conservation of bean genetic resources. CIAT will identify priority collections eligible for long-term support from the Global Crop Diversity Trust and promote their urgent upgrading and the need for any necessary training. The strategy will promote the rationalization of conservation efforts at regional and global levels, e.g. through encouraging partnerships and sharing facilities and tasks, and will link with the relevant regional conservation strategies.
