Preparing periodic status reports on plant genetic resources

This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities. Agenda 21 recommends preparing periodic state-of-the-world reports on PGRFA (plant genetic resources for agriculture).

In 1993, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) launched its International Conference and Programme for Plant Genetic Resources to prepare the first global report on the state of the world's plant genetic resources.
