Community-Based Management of Animal Genetic Resources. Proceedings of the workshop held in Mbabane, Swaziland, 7–11 May 2001


The workshop was planned and organized by the SADC/FAO/United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) project, “Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources in the SADC Region”, the Southern Africa Centre for Cooperation in Agricultural Research and Training (SACCAR), SADC Livestock Coordination in Botswana and German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), through the project “Managing Agrobiodiversity in Rural Areas”. The Department of Veterinary and Livestock Services of the Kingdom of Swaziland hosted the workshop. The objectives of the workshop were to elaborate recommendations to policy-makers, donors, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other relevant actors of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region with regard to community-based in situ conservation. To develop strategic elements for in situ conservation of AnGR (Animal Genetic Resource) at the political, institutional and communal level of the management of agricultural biodiversity and to strengthen networking on AnGR in the SADC region and further the harmonization of AnGR related national policies and strategies.
