Farm animal genetic resources from the perspective of rural communities

Asia-level workshop hosted by Lokhit Pashu-Palak Sansthan, 12-16 October 2003

This workshop introduced the “LIFE Method” of documenting breeds, exposed livestock and animal breeding professionals to field situations and familiarized them with the perspective of livestock breeding communities, provided background information on evolving issues within the sector (such as the upcoming negotiations for an International Treaty on Farm Animal Genetic Resources), and projected the status of selected Indian livestock breeds.

Recommendations to promote the sustainable use of farm animal genetic resources in Asia covered four issues:

  • Documentation of animal genetic resources (role of traditional communities)
  • Strengthening the role of traditional communities in conserving and managing sustainable AnGR
  • Support for traditional communities to maintain their role, lobbying for cultural diversity
  • Treaty and legal requirements for the conservation and protection of intellectual property rights.
