Regional PGR networks hold joint meeting on Treaty implementation

We want to highlight this meeting, even though it took place before this blog was launched. The European Community Plant Genetic Resources Network (EC/PGR) and the Near East and North Africa Plant Genetic Resources Network (NENA PGRN) coorganized a workshop, in Turkey, in September 2011, concerning the implementation of the Treaty. Representatives from a number of countries shared information about their genebanks and PGR information systems, and their efforts — and the challenges they have faced — to implement the multilateral system.  The organizers have posted a summary of the workshop, and powerpoint presentations about progress implementing the multilateral system   in Germany, Italy, Sweden, Lebanon, Sudan, Turkey and Egypt.
