General genebank management strategies and principles

This section of the website covers important strategies and principles related to genebank decision-making, that are not necessarily crop-specific.

The pages listed on the left show the outputs developed by different groups, leaders of parallel activities of the project on the “Collective Action for the Rehabilitation of Global Public Goods in the CGIAR Genetic Resources System: Phase 2”, funded by the World Bank.

Some of these outputs are still under preparation, but will be posted as soon as they are released.

The persons responsible for the information provided in these pages are listed at the top of each page.

The Genebanks

The 11 CGIAR genebanks currently conserve 730,000 of cereals and grain legumes, forage crops, tree species, root and tuber crops, bananas and crop wild relatives.
