A european farm animal biodiversity information system

Objective

The objective of the project is to create an integrate infrastructure of databases to monitor farm animal biodiversity (FAB) in Europe. This project will meet the specific requirements of the European continent as well as the need for full compatibility with the Global Information System (DAD-IS) of FAO. The outcomes of the project will be made available to the widest range of potential users. It will be an important tool in characterisation, utilisation and conservation of those genetic resources. The project will help rationalise the monitoring of livestock and poultry genetic diversity, and favour a greater awareness of the genetic resources available to the European farmers. The new European database structure will help the countries in collecting information on the one hand and will be integrated with DAD-IS, which is designed to link all parties to the FAO Global Strategy for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources.
