“The overall aim of the project is to achieve long-term security of the agro-biodiversity existing in the CAC region. The specific objectives are as follows: Objective 1: Consolidate the development of a long-term regional capacity to collect, conserve, document, utilize and exchange PGR in accordance with their obligations as signatories to the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. Objective 2: Identify and assemble national base collections of seed for field crop species. Objective 3: Consolidate the development of a comprehensive national and regional PGR information system that will allow 1) PGR workers to collect, acquire, conserve and document national PGR collections more efficiently and 2) plant breeders to more efficiently utilize PGR from the region. Objective 4: Compile detailed information surfaces that characterizes the environments from which PGR have been collected in the CAC region. Objective 5,6,7 “
