Plant genetic resources activities of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)



Plant genetic resources activities of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)



Crop genetic resources of Africa Volume II Proceedings of an international symposium, Ibadan, Nigeria, 17-20 October 1988: 53-60



This paper traces the history of FAO's commitment to plant genetic resources from the earliest meetings in the 1940s to the 1960s when it provided assistance to plant exploration missions and began publishing the precursor to the Plant Genetic Resources Newsletter. FAO's involvement in the establishment of the CGIAR (1971) and IBPGR (1974) is described. In 1983, the International Undertaking on Plant Genetic Resources was formulated and an intergovernmental Commission set up.
