Genesys as source of data on ex situ holdings for the Second GPA

Last updated by Matija Obreza 5 months ago Jun 19, 2017

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:

  1. All germplasm in their base collection(s); and
  2. Unique accessions which are stored in medium/long-term conservation facilities and are expected to become part of the national base collections.

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.
