Genesys as source of data on ex situ holdings for the Second GPA
Genesys may be used as a source of data on ex situ holdings for the Second Global Plan of Action on PGRFA.
National Focal Points (NFPs) who wish to report on the implementation of the Second Global Plan of Action for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (Second GPA) and whose national inventory of ex situ holdings is published and downloadable from a web information system using MCPD descriptors, such as Genesys, may opt to report on Genesys:
By publishing collection data on Genesys the NFPs do not have to submit accession-level passport data again to FAO. FAO should be informed accordingly (email: WIEWS@fao.org) and will retrieve information from Genesys periodically.
NFPs are reminded to monitor the implementation of other areas of the Second GPA by using the WIEWS Second GPA Reporting System.
