Inventory and characterization Part II. Sustainable use and development Part III. Conservation of animal genetic resources Part IV. Policies, institutions and capacity building questions to stimulate discussion: identify priorities within each theme relevant to the region identify actions which are needed to address regional priorities find out limiting factors hindering implementation of actions and how it can be facilitated agreement / disagreement Slide28:  Guiding questions for discussion Part I. Inventory and characterization Goal 1: Improving the understanding of the status and characteristics of AnGR to enable their sustainable use, development and conservation Which are presently the main restrictions at national and regional levels to carry out species and breeds inventories? What actions can be taken at national and regional levels to carry out these inventories, allowing countries with similar species and breeds to develop regional strategies for use, management and conservation? Slide29:  Contributions from Europe Inventory and characterization Czech Republic: main restriction to carry out species and breeds inventories & characterization is lack of confidence of farmers who are afraid of taxes if disclosing real number of animals (goats, rabbits, chicken, and geese) Similarities/agreement/support RSPA establishment or support of breed associations Proposal to involve communal & hobby groups to elucidate and convince farmers and village people. Recognition of need to use compatible databases and information systems and adopting standard methods Slide30:  Guiding questions for discussion Part II. Sustainable use and development Goal 2: Enhancing the use & development of AnGR in all relevant production systems as part of efforts to achieve food security & alleviate poverty 2.1 Potential short term measures to ensure the conservation of breeds, assuming these breeds largely contribute to improving the nutrition level of rural communities and that niche market opportunities exist that can justify their conservation from a production point of view? Slide31:  Guiding questions for discussion Part II. Sustainable use and development Goal 2: Enhancing the use & development of AnGR in all relevant production systems as part of efforts to achieve food security & alleviate poverty 2.2 Products of some animal species are recognised for variety of their characteristics. Potential type of marketing to valorise breeds as additional incentive to conserve them? 2.3 How can some of the more advanced sustainable production techniques complement local knowledge of rural and indigenous communities that keep local species/breeds, while preserving their traditions, but at the same time improving their quality of life? Slide32:  Guiding questions for discussion Part II. Sustainable use and development Goal 2: Enhancing the use & development of AnGR in all relevant production systems as part of efforts to achieve food security & alleviate poverty 2.4 Considering similar AnGR among countries require regional actions, what activities would you propose to undertake in the short and medium term? 2.5 “Centres of excellence” for species/breeds to coordinate research activities & facilitate the exchange of experiences between countries? Proposals for their set-up & function! Slide33:  Guiding questions for discussion Part II. Sustainable use and development Goal 2: Enhancing the use & development of AnGR in all relevant production systems as part of efforts to achieve food security & alleviate poverty 2.6 Potential institutions providing assistance? 2.7 How can national experiences be shared regionally to support breeding associations, develop standardized registration systems for production, implement sustainable programmes for genetic improvement of local and exotic breeds and increase contribution of animal production to national economies? Slide34:  Contributions from Europe Utilization and development In countries where the agricultural sector is perceived as marginal, arising awareness about the importance of AnGR is a difficult task. Czech Republic: joint breeding programme for Hutsul horse with Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania & Ukraine as example of sharing experiences & mutual access to info Priority: Need to develop new products Slide35:  Guiding questions for discussion Part III. Conservation of animal genetic resources Goal: Conserving AnGR to ensure their availability for future use and development in all production systems 3.1 How to develop & improve the knowledge of political decision makers and of society as a whole on the contribution of AnGR, and in some cases mainly of native breeds, to food security and to social stability in their country? 3.2 Next to the AnGR sector, what other sectors of the production chain can contribute to the sustainable use and conservation of AnGR, especially of those species/breeds at risk of extinction? 3.3 What would be the most appropriate strategy to train a significant number of technicians in the short term? Slide36:  Guiding questions for discussion Part III. Conservation of animal genetic resources Goal: Conserving AnGR to ensure their availability for future use and development in all production systems 3.4 How can available technologies and structures in the region be used to train technicians? 3.5 What needs to be done to ensure that future generations, mainly those living in urban areas, have a better understanding of the importance of AnGR and in particular of those species/breeds that are part of the country’s cultural heritage and traditions? How would you implement such an educational programme? Slide37:  Guiding questions for discussion Part III. Conservation of animal genetic resources Goal: Conserving AnGR to ensure their availability for future use and development in all production systems 3.6 Establishment and/or strengthening of national coordinating structures to advice & participate in activities related to the use & conservation of AnGR necessary & viable? Integration with RFP, functioning & financial set-up? 3.7 Joint regional conservation actions amongst countries a priority? Type of collaboration and how to establish it? Slide38:  Guiding questions for discussion Part III. Conservation of animal genetic resources Goal: Conserving AnGR to ensure their availability for future use and development in all production systems 3.8 Regional genebanks priority? Legal frameworks required? 3.9 How can FAO and/or other institutional organizations support your government to improve awareness on the roles and values of AnGR (decision makers, other stakeholders, general public)? Slide39:  Contributions from Europe Conservation Austria: offered to share information about database “Schazi”. with special module for inbreeding- calculation and mating proposals for rare breeds of sheep’s and goats Avoidance of unrecorded and uncontrolled crossbreeding most important measure to ensure conservation Need for training of farmers and technicians Importance of combining in situ & ex situ measures Points raised: certified origin - traditional knowledge. Slide40:  Guiding questions Part IV. Policies, institutions and capacity building Goal:   Enhancing institutional development and capacity building to achieve successful implementation of national programmes 4.1     Functioning National Focal Point ? Main constraints? 4.2     Any regional research cooperation (informal & formal networks)? Establishment & support? 4.3     How can FAO facilitate mobilization of resources from donors to implement national priorities? 4.4     Setting-up of Regional Focal Point (RFP)? 4.5     Allocation of national resources to establish & maintain RFP? Available facilities – additional support needed? Regional organization to foster RFP? Slide41:  Contributions from Europe Networking would solve limitations to get access to and use information systems, databases and standardize methods -European Regional Focal Point best support. Legal AnGR as priority in national political agenda through relevant international legislative framework or treaty as in PGR - need for EU binding laws highlighted.
